Abominations!

“'Do not pollute the land where you are. Bloodshed pollutes the land…” (Numbers 35:33a);

“Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil” (Is 5:20a);

“A perverse heart shall depart from me;
I will not know wickedness.” (Ps 101:4);

“For all who do these things are an abomination to the LORD…” [referring to people who favor child sacrifice, idolatry, witchcraft, etc…] (Deut 18:12a)

We try to report news events and analyze them from what we believe is God's perspective based on what He says in the Bible. Below are several current events which I believe God considers “abominations” which, according to Numbers 35:33 (see above), “pollute the land”:

1. Rick Warren's Followers Give Pro-Abortion Candidate a “Standing Ovation”
For some reason which baffles me, Rick Warren keeps asking presidential candidates to speak at his forums. Some are ardent supporters of abortion and homosexuality which should disqualify them from being invited to speak at Christian meetings, much less receiving a “standing ovation”.

This candidate's deep commitment to abortion and homosexuality is well known. According to Tim Wildmon of the American Family Association, “This serves to raise [this candidate's] profile as a legitimate presidential candidate in the eyes of evangelical Christians… [which] is a huge error…[because these] political stances are contrary to biblical teaching.”

What are the spiritual considerations?

    1. Rick Warren seems to be enamored with political stars. Drawing positive attention to people whose fruit is wicked in God's eyes is dangerous, especially if you are the famous leader of a large flock. Ever heard of false prophets? (See Matt 7:15-16)

    2. The people who attend Warren's meetings seem to be very “dumbed down” biblically. Given the candidate's love affair with child sacrifice and homosexual marriage, how can any true believer pay attention to anything such a candidate says, much less give a standing ovation (especially after ridiculing abstinence as an approach to AIDS)?

      Christianity is in deep trouble when its leaders lead people astray, far from true biblical understandings of God's Ways.

    2. Democrats Endorse Ramadan; Diss Christmas. Let's get one thing straight - Islam is a false religion. There is “only one way” and its not by way of Allah, Muhammed, the Koran or jihad. Jesus is the one and ONLY way (see John 14:6).

    Endorsing Ramadan celebrations is, in God's eyes, IDOLATRY (Exodus 20:3-4, the first and second commandments). 59 Democrats could not bring themselves to approve a Resolution which stated the obvious, that Christmas is “a holiday of great significance to Americans.” Instead, nine Democrats, noting the onset of Ramadan, praised Islam as one of the “great religions of the world.”

    Likewise President Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice opened both the White House and the State Department for Ramadan celebrations. (See article - “Dems: Amen to Ramadan, but forget about Christmas.”)

    What are the spiritual considerations? When the national leaders sin (in our case it's more serious because “we the people” voted them into office), the entire nation is led to commit these sins and suffer more of God's Wrath as a result (remember Bill Clinton's immorality and what's happening to our culture now!) [ For example, see Jeroboam, 2 Kings 15:9 & Manesseh, 2 Kings 21:11]

    So, when our elected leaders (including President Bush who has praised Islam and allowed Ramadan events to be held in the White House) endorse and encourage IDOLATRY, God is not pleased, because He is “a jealous God” who wants and deserves ALL our love, thanks and worship (See Ex 20:5; Deut 5:9).
    3. The USA Bullies Israel to Give Up More Biblical Land to Jihadists. As we noted a few weeks ago (see our Alert of Nov 21 - Danger: Urgent Prayer Needed to Foil Annapolis Meeting), God judges those who try to “divide” the land He gave to Abraham and his descendents as an “everlasting possession” (See Gen 17:8).

    Well, we are still at it, publicly rebuking Israel for trying to defend herself and encouraging her enemies with billions of dollars. These enemies, led by Hamas terrorists, daily fire rockets into southern Israel, killing, maiming and terrorizing peaceful Jews.

    How can anyone make “peace” with people who vow to destroy them?

    Why are President Bush and Condi Rice so determined to divide Israel's land? Certainly they know the character and goals of the jihadists they are supporting (I have been informed that the President knows about the prophetic warnings and the consequences of “dividing the land”; he seems to have chosen to ignore them).

    So, we keep bullying Israel. It appears to be Condi Rice's greatest “crusade”.

    What are the spiritual consequences for the Nation and the individuals involved? The Lord warns:
    a. Israel is “the apple of My Eye”; WOE to those who “touch” her; He will shake His Hand against them (Zech 2:8-9); WOE!;

    b. Those who seek to “divide up My land” will face severe “judgment” (Joel 32);
    c. “As you have done (to Israel), so it will be done to you” (Obed 15).

    Other relevant articles:

    Well, the three “abominations” listed above are only a small sample of what's happening here at home and worldwide.

    As we approach Christmas we must give thanks to the Lord for the Birth of Jesus. Obviously millions of people and their leaders are enslaved by ungodly goals, lusts, deception and idolatry. But, we give thanks to Him for sending Jesus through whom we can know the TRUTH and enjoy PEACE.

    Something “Stinky” in the White House!

    “God has judged her for the way she treated you.” (Rev 18:20)

    “Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne.” (Ps 89:14a)

    “It is not good to show partiality to the wicked,
    Or to overthrow the righteous in judgment.” (Prov 18:5)

    I recently discussed the President's most recent refusal to pardon Border Agents Ramos and Compean with a friend who has been ardently petitioning for them to be pardoned or their sentences to be commuted (like Bush's good friend Scooter Libby).

    “Why,” I asked, “does Karl Rove get so angry when asked about the President's refusal? What about this matter provokes such incendiary responses?”

    My friend believes Rove is covering for the President and the President's “very close friend” U.S. District Attorney Johnny Sutton. The three of them have been close associates since their days in Texas. For some strange reason Bush has a special interest in this somewhat obscure case. He seems insistent that Sutton's overreaching in persecuting these two agents be vindicated.

    My friend, who has contacts in the highest places in D.C., told me, There is something stinky in the White House.

    Please understand that God HATES and DETESTS INJUSTICE and PARTIALITY when sentencing people (see above). He will see to it that Ramos and Compean get justice; and He will judge Bush, Rove, Sutton and the presiding judge for their complicity in placing these agents in solitary confinement.

    The Wrath of God is a fearsome thing. “'Vengeance is Mine, I will repay' says the Lord” (Rom 12:19).

    (See my most recent Alert which goes into greater detail about this matter in our archives, dated Dec 6: President Bush is Sinning)

    Here are excerpts of an article about the President's very recent pardoning of drug dealers and other criminals, but not Ramos and Compean, despite the pleas for mercy from hundreds of thousands of concerned citizens:

    “Several members of Congress derided President Bush yesterday for not including former U.S. Border Patrol agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Alonso Compean among the 29 pardons that he issued this week.”

    “Rep. Duncan Hunter, California Republican and presidential candidate, said that 'two names were conspicuously missing' from the list, which included carjackers, drug dealers, a moonshiner, a man convicted of stealing government property and another sentenced for receiving kickbacks in military procurement contracts.

    “Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, California Republican, said the pardon list includes eight drug dealers, saying Mr. Bush's 'heartless ignoring of the fundamental miscarriage of justice in the case of agents Ramos and Compean ... is a snub to the families and a slap in the face to millions of Americans who have pleaded with the president to show some mercy.'”

    “'Instead, he turns around and shows mercy to drug dealers and other criminals and leaves Ramos and Compean to suffer in solitary confinement' he said”(emphases mine).

    The entire article can be found here: Lack of pardon for agents ripped
    by Jerry Seper

    If you love President Bush (as I do) and admire things he has done (holding firm on stem cells, for example), please pray for him. This is a matter of the greatest significance to the Lord! The President will have to answer for this injustice unless he repents.

    President Bush Is Sinning

    “Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne.”(Ps 89:14a)

    “Acquitting the guilty and condemning the innocent - the Lord detests them both.” (Prov 17:15)

    “Also, to punish the righteous is not good.” (Prov 17:26a)

    “It is not good to show partiality to the wicked, or to overthrow the righteous in judgment.” (Prov 18:5)

    As you can see from the quotes just above, the Lord takes JUSTICE very seriously. In fact, it is one of two foundations of His Throne. [As an aside, following the Rule of Law is perhaps the most important secular reason our country has prospered.]

    Regarding Justice, it is very important to the Lord that people be treated justly; that innocent people be acquitted and guilty people be condemned! He DETESTS it when innocent men are found guilty and punished (see above quotes). It is a fearsome thing to knowingly violate this Biblical principle! Having God detest your deeds should be terrifying.

    “What does this have to do with President Bush? Harry, how can you accuse him of sinning?”

    Answer: You may be familiar with the issue of the two Border Agents who were arrested, tried and put in solitary confinement for doing their job trying to stop a Mexican drug smuggler.

    It appears the President, under pressure from Mexican authorities and in hopes of appealing to the Latino vote, was complicit in these agents being dealt with in this fashion. One of Bush's closest friends, fellow Texan U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton, seems to have been urged to pursue this draconian policy.

    Some of the above is conjecture based on inside information and observation of facts which have come out in the trials (see below).

    However, it is absolute fact that President Bush has followed this case closely, has been in cahoots with his “very close friend” Johnny Sutton, and (most significantly) has REFUSED to commute the sentences or PARDON these agents who were only guilty of doing their jobs.

    People of great importance in the conservative movement and the Republican Party have written the President, urging him to overturn these sentences. He has refused!! That is fact! Meanwhile, these two men rot in solitary confinement for 10 years! (Remember how quickly Scooter Libby's sentence was commuted.)

    Thankfully the sentence so ardently sought by Sutton (obviously with the President's tacit approval) was the subject of a new hearing by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on December 3.

    Before we present excerpts from an article which discusses this very complicated case, let me explain how I can say “Bush Is Sinning” (which I publicly asked one of his closest advisors to warn the President - “that God is not happy with this and will not smile on his presidency because of it”).

    Again, let's review the situation from what we believe is God's perspective. Here we have two men who, according to unbiased news reports, have been unnecessarily persecuted by high authorities and jailed for long periods in solitary confinement. They should never have been accused or found guilty (important exculpatory evidence was withheld by Attorney Sutton AND the judge). Despite the pleas of very upright people of high integrity, the President REFUSES to overturn the decision and set them free. Why? Ask Johnny Sutton, Karl Rove and President Bush himself.

    But, God is on the Throne and He detests this politically-based perversion of JUSTICE. It is sin!

    Here are some excerpts from an article which unpacks the details involved (Please read the entire article, in order to truly understand):

    Border Agents case gets holiday push by Johanna Neuman

    “Conservatives expressed bitter disappointment Friday that President Bush did not use the Thanksgiving holiday to pardon two U.S. border agents who have been imprisoned for a year for shooting and injuring a man now accused of drug smuggling.”

    “'We had hoped that President Bush, who was compassionate enough to pardon two turkeys in the Rose Garden, might also have had enough compassion to pardon two law enforcement officers who spent their lives defending us at the border,' said Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA).”

    “A group of Christian and evangelical leaders -- including Paul M. Weyrich of the Free Congress Foundation… excoriated Bush, saying his inaction ran counter to compassionate conservatism and Christian values.”

    “Johnny Sutton, the U.S. attorney for the western district of Texas, has defended the decision to prosecute the border agents.”

    “Critics also are angry at the administration for keeping the two border agents in a medium-security prison that houses a large contingent of drug offenders, meaning Ramos and Compean must be kept in solitary confinement 23 hours a day.”

    How Do You Feel About the ‘Gang-Rape’
    in Annapolis? I’m SAD!

    “They have also healed the hurt of My people slightly,
    Saying, 'Peace, peace!'
    When there is no peace.”(Jer 6:14)

    “The LORD has fulfilled His fury,
    He has poured out His fierce anger.” (Lam 4:11a)

    “My eyes fail with tears, My heart is troubled” (Lam 2:11a)

    Shortly after the conclusion of the first day of the “Peace” conference in Annapolis, it is difficult to be anything but very, very SAD.

    “Why are you sad, Harry? Don’t you want ‘Peace’? Didn’t Jesus call you to be a ‘Peacemaker’ (see Mt 5:9)?”

    “Yes”, but not at the price of ignoring the two foundations of His Throne, Righteousness and Justice (see Ps 89:14).

    Also, certainly not if this “Peace” defies the Lord’s specific Prophetic Warnings and Will. As we explained in my most recent Alert (see Nov 21st Alert here), the Lord does not want the Biblical lands He designated to the Israelis as an “everlasting covenant” (i.e. FOREVER!) to be divided up.

    [For a more thorough explanation of the very significant prophetic words about “touching” Israel and Jerusalem, please read Paragraph 5 of my Alert referenced above.]

    Again, as my recent Alert warned, those who instigate the division of these lands have historically suffered devastating natural DISASTERS as a consequence of God’s Wrath (see the article by John McTernan, Burden for America, which reviews this in great detail).

    Then, of course, I’m sad because my very own country and President (for whom I had such high hopes) have instigated this travesty.

    “Harry, what do ‘righteousness and justice’ have to do with the Annapolis meeting?”
    The authors listed below do a fine job of answering that very good question. Suffice it to say, these meetings are “unjust” and “not-right” for several reasons:

    “Peace” is unattainable because it is not the goal of most of the participants – the punishment and elimination of Israel is!

    The motives of the leaders of these meetings are “not-right”. Their motives seem to be vainglory, legacy building, humiliating Israel, acquiring land for themselves (e.g., the Golan Heights for Syria) and desperately trying to stay in office at home (e.g., Prime Minister Ehud Olmert of Israel), etc.

    Desperately trying to appease Israel’s enemies (who are driven by an anti-Semitic spirit), Israel will probably further shrink herself by giving away more land and security in hopes of winning approval from people and nations who hate her and will NEVER do anything but “curse” her.

    It is certainly “unjust and not-right” for us to foster a terrorist state on the borders of Israel.

    Frank Gaffney (see below) sums it up: it’s a “Gang-Rape”, one which sounds great to dull, misunderstanding ears but, in reality, will have devastating repercussions for both Israel (our supposed “ally”) and the United States.

    So, please study the articles listed below. The topic is so complex and arcane. Together, these writings provide deep and well-rounded understanding of the perils posed by George Bush’s meetings. May God have mercy on us all!

    Sadly,

    DANGER: URGENT PRAYER NEEDED
    TO FOIL ANNAPOLIS MEETING

    “I will bless those who bless you,
    And I will curse him who curses you” (Gen 12:3a)

    “Also I give to you and your descendants after you the land in which you are a stranger, all the land of Canaan, as an everlasting possession” (Gen 17:8)

    There are many objections I have about President Bush's past decisions. These include his immigration policies; his cozy appeasement of Mexico's Presidents; his refusal to pardon the two border agents (Ramos and Compean) whom his good Texas buddy and appointee U.S. Attorney Johnny Sutton arranged to have imprisoned in solitary confinement; supporting LOST (see www.rejectlost.com); signing the McCain-Feingold Finance Bill; holding Islamic Ramadan soirees in the White House and elsewhere; etc., etc.

    [I want to establish that there are many things he has done for which I am very grateful - his support for innocent unborn babies and his stem cell policies, his tax policies, and his judicial nominees are major examples.]

    However, he is embarking on this Israeli - Palestinian (so-called) “Peace Conference” in Annapolis, Maryland, on Tuesday, November 27. The Iraq war notwithstanding, this effort to build himself (and Condoleezza Rice) a “legacy” could have very severe consequences for our nation.

    How can I say that? Isn't “Peace” desirable? Doesn't “the world community” (most of whom are cruel dictators, communists or socialists) yearn for this? Most would answer “Yes”. But it is unattainable and, even worse, this specific “peace” effort goes directly against God's Prophetic Word about Israel.

    His Prophetic Word warns:

    1. Israel is “the apple of His eye;” woe to those who “touch” her for He will shake His Hand against them. (see Zech 2:8-9);

    2. He gave the land in question (especially Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria) to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob as an everlasting covenant (what don't some people understand about “everlasting”?) [see Ps 105:9 and others];

    3. He warns “nations” not to “divide up my land” or face severe “judgment” (see Joel 3:2);

    4. He flatly states that ALL who seek to “heave it away” (i.e., remove the heavy burden of the Jerusalem crisis) will be utterly destroyed for getting involved; they will be “cut in pieces” (see Zech 12:3-9);

    5. He warns that “as you have done (to Israel) so it will be done to you” (Obed 15).

    You may read these prophetic warnings with disbelief. Please don't do so too hastily. For years, we at the Capitol Hill Prayer Alert have been interacting with ministries which have been tracking the distinct relationship between ignoring God's warnings about dividing His covenant land of Israel and subsequent natural disasters which have devastated our nation (including Katrina, floods, earthquakes, wildfires, and stock market crashes). One ministry we trust has “documented over 50 such correlations”.

    Please click here and read: Burden for America by John McTernan

    These ministries believe that, based on the Word of God and His Warnings, as well as the actual correlations they have seen, President Bush's attempt to force Israel to give up more land (remember Gaza!) will bring us under God's Wrath in greater intensity (they believe this could play out in our economy).

    I realize this will sound new and even strange to some, so here is a list of articles which explain the unrealistic natural and prophetic aspects of what is at stake here:

    o Israel's Latest Bout of Hopeful Insanity by Ben Shapiro
    o Another International Peace Conference: What Will Be the Outcome? by Shira Sorko-Ram
    o A Divided Jerusalem by P. David Hornik
    o Staticidal Zealotry by Frank J. Gaffney Jr.
    o Selling Out Israel by Bits by Cal Thomas
    o Rice is Deceived by Palestinian Ruse Ahead of Peace Summit by Bill Wilson
    o Zechariah's warning to Bush and Condi by Hal Lindsey
    o Annapolis Blues by Daniel Pipes
    o The Lynching Date is Set by Jan Markell
    As always, when the Middle East and especially Israel are involved, matters are unusually complex. As your Watchman here in the D.C. area I am obligated to inform and warn you of impending danger. Based on the Bible and my personal observations of Israel-issues, and ministries which specialize in them, I believe the above is true. You will have to judge for yourselves.

    God be with you and our nation! May HIS MERCY triumph over the judgment we deserve for so many terrible things we do (e.g., abortion, homosexuality and other gross perversions).

    How to PRAY:

    1. REPENT for our treatment of God's covenant land;
    2. PRAY that the Annapolis meeting WILL NOT TAKE PLACE and their plans will be FRUSTRATED!
    3. May GOD'S WILL be done! Not the devil's or any of the participants; only God's Will!

    Has God 'Given Us Over'?
    (and Leftists Strike Again!)

    “I will punish the world for its evil…” (Is 13:11a)

    “Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness,
    in the lusts of their hearts…” (Rom 1:24a)

    During the past few weeks I have been overwhelmed by the great volume of reports about issues and matters of grave importance to you and your family; to your church and The Church in general; and, truly, to the Nation and the World

    Based on the above, I am coming to believe that Romans 1:24-32 is underway in some fashion and to some degree. How much I am not sure at this time. But, based on the information to which I am privy, I am absolutely sure it has begun.

    So, for the foreseeable future I plan to alter my approach to our Alerts:

    1. You will receive more short Alerts, about a greater variety of topics for prayer;

    2. I will be offering you some Biblical thoughts about “God giving us over;” what it looks like when He does; and what you and I have an obligation to do about it once we have been warned.

    As an example of #1 above, may I alert you that the liberal/socialist/pagan crowd is busy once again trying to defeat the United States and its armed forces. For the 58th time (yes, 58th, they never give up) the House of Representatives has initiated an effort to defund the troops, embarrass President Bush, and get us out of Iraq, thereby turning that vital nation over to Iran and Al-Qaeda and making it a very safe haven for Islamofascists. Does that make geopolitical sense? Or is it pandering to their far left base to make political points?

    Below are excerpts from a Nov. 15th article about this:

    “The Pentagon yesterday warned that money was already running out for combat operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, as congressional Democrats dismissed recent security gains and threatened to stall emergency war funds.”

    “'The Army is in a particularly precarious situation,' Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell said. 'Absent extraordinary measures, it would run out of money by mid-February - so quick congressional action is needed as quickly as possible.'”(editorial comment: Do the leftists even care?)

    “Nevertheless, House Democrats passed a $50 billion war-spending bill last night with a 218-203 vote that President Bush promises to veto because it mandates a U.S. pullout from Iraq start immediately with a goal of a nearly complete withdrawal by December 2008.”

    “The top Democrats - House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada - say they will withhold troop funds for at least the rest of the year if Mr. Bush does not accept the pullout timetable.”

    “White House press secretary Dana Perino said Democrats used the pullout bill 'for political posturing and to appease radical groups.'”

    “The Democrats believe that these votes will somehow punish the president, but it actually punishes the troops.”(emphases mine)

    I realize I have packed a lot into this, but matters in our world are reaching a critical mass and, as your watchman since 1991, I feel an obligation to keep you informed. If you have feedback, please reply! Thank you!

    Updates on LOST and ENDA

    “Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees,
    Who write misfortune,
    Which they have prescribed…
    For all this His anger is not turned away,
    But His hand is stretched out still.”(Is 10:1, 4b

    Recently we have been alerting you about two VERY significant (and wicked) pieces of legislation. I think you might appreciate an update about the status of each.

    1. Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST):

    For extensive information about this treaty which threatens our national sovereignty and will put us under a “world government” controlled by the UN, please see our recent extensive and thorough Alerts (see past alerts here 9/12, 9/26, 10/24, & 10/29).

    Unfortunately, LOST was approved by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, 17-4, with the help of deceived globalist Republicans. Next, it will go to the entire Senate for a final vote. When this will take place is uncertain.

    If 34 senators agree to filibuster this treaty, it will be killed. Efforts to corral 34 are currently underway. We must PRAY!

    2. ENDA:

    We have also written about the innocently named “Employment Non-Discrimination Act” (see past alerts here, 9/18 & 11/1).

    With great sadness we have to report that this abomination passed the House on November 7, and will now go to the Senate where Senator Kennedy (who else?) will introduce it and make his usual valiant effort to have it approved. Thankfully, President Bush has promised to veto it. (Don't hold your breath.)

    According to Bill Murray of the Religious Freedom Coalition, ENDA will “grant special employment rights and protected minority status to individuals based upon sexual behaviors. The law is based on the individual's 'perception' of being persecuted. Under this bill, non-denominational Christian schools would be forced to hire homosexuals.”

    Peter LaBarbera (President of Americans For Truth) writes:

    “In an era when homosexuals are being hired - not fired - for 'being gay' -- and when Christians are already being punished or fired by corporations like Allstate for opposing homosexuality, ENDA would lead to further harassment of faith-motivated employees by creating federal 'rights' based on homosexuality and bisexuality.”

    “It's Big Government with an amoral twist and, incidentally, a homosexual activist lawyer's dream.”

    “ENDA would take away Christians' and others' right to stand up for Biblical morality.”
    So, what to do about these two (and other) dangers to our beloved nation:
    1. WAKE UP!

    The pagans are busy dissolving the fabric of this country and Christians seem unconcerned. Before you know it, all will be lost and you will have no one to blame but yourselves and your pastors, priests, elders, etc. who have failed to warn and lead you into effective resistance (see Ezek 33);
    2. PRAY!

    Only prayer can effectively turn back this tide of evil. Please call together prayer groups and cry out to the Lord for deliverance (see 2 Chron 20).

    ENDA - House to vote soon;
    Contact your representatives!

    “God is a just judge,
    And God is angry with the wicked every day.”(Ps 7:11)

    “The boastful shall not stand in Your sight;
    You hate all workers of iniquity.” (Ps 5:5)

    I recently (Archives - Sep 18) wrote to you about ENDA (Employment Non-Discrimination Act - H.R. 2015). This bill, if signed into law, would create a federally-protected status for 'sexual orientation' defined as homosexuality, bisexuality and 'gender identity,' which is the sense of how a person 'feels' about his or her birth sex.

    As the Family Research Council (FRC) has noted, “ENDA's real purpose [is] suppressing religious freedom”. In an effort to “educate and mobilize” mor Americans, FRC has created a brochure which “explains how homosexual activists are camouflaging their demand for special treatment as an appeal for 'equal rights.'” You can obtain it from their website: http://www.frc.org.

    eThe vote on ENDA has been delayed, but is expected to resurface soon. Please take time to read FRC's brochure, as well as the excerpts and relevant articles below.

    Concerned Women for America (CWA) has asked the President for a veto pledge on ENDA, but it is not certain if a Veto will be issued. CWA's Policy Director for Cultural Issues, Matt Barber had this to say:

    “ENDA pits the government directly against religion… It would force employers to check their First Amendment guaranteed rights to freedom of religion, speech and association at the workplace door…”

    “ENDA would force business owners to betray their faith and adopt a view of sexual morality which directly conflicts with fundamental tenets of that faith.”

    “It would give liberal judges the authority to subjectively determine who qualifies for an exemption.”

    “It… would open the floodgates for lawsuits against employers who wish to live out their faith.” (emphases added)
    Additionally, according to a World Net Daily article:

    “Staff members for President Bush have helped congressional staffers work on 'religious exemption' language for a new 'anti-discrimination' proposal that actually would codify in federal statutes an anti-Christian bias, and that will make it harder for him to veto, according to an activist group.”

    “The proposal, for which homosexual and transsexual activists are crusading, has tremendous potential to criminalize Christianity in the United States by creating federal 'rights' based on wrong and destructive lifestyle.”

    “As WND has reported, this issue recently came to a head in California, where Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed into law a ban on anything that includes a 'discriminatory bias' that could be perceived as being against bisexuals, transsexuals and homosexuals in all public schools.”

    “There, analysts have concluded that even the terms 'mom and dad' and 'husband and wife' could be banned because someone in a same-sex lifestyle choice could perceive that as being derogatory.” (emphases added)

    Engage in the battle: contact your representatives and tell them to OPPOSE ENDA! And PRAY for GOD to move!

    "Treason" Again: Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST)

    “The sea is His, for He made it;
    And His hands formed the dry land.” (Ps 95:5)

    “All the rivers run into the sea” (Eccl 1:7a)

    We seem to be coming to you often about TREASON. Why? Am I obsessed? Do I see TREASON, like demons, under every rock? I hope not.

    As I pointed out recently (see Archives - Dated Oct 18) the Elites (read Socialists/ Marxists”) at home and abroad are continually reaching for more and more CONTROL and POWER.

    This time they want to exercise CONTROL over 70% of the world's surface and lands which affect the world's oceans (e.g., the little stream in your backyard which eventually feeds into some ocean somewhere).

    Why are American supporters (e.g., President Bush, Hillary Clinton, Joseph Biden, Barack Obama, etc.) TRAITORS? Because they are willingly and ardently handing over American Sovereignty to an international body affiliated with the corrupt and very anti-American UN.

    Each person advocating the Senate's ratification of this evil and unpatriotic Treaty is betraying his/her sworn pledge to “uphold the Constitution of the United States” and defend her interests. Therefore, in my opinion, they are TRAITORS! (Many, many appeals have been made to President Bush to back away from his support of LOST; he simply refuses; this I know for a fact; see the “Relevant” article below.)

    I have written twice before about LOST (Archives - Dated Sept 12 & Sept 26). Please also see Rejectlost.org for a comprehensive analysis of the disastrous consequences which will take effect if LOST is ratified by the Senate.

    Below are some excerpts from a full-page advertisement exposing LOST. The ad ran October 24, in the Washington Times:

    “This accord gives a UN-affiliated organization the authority to control 70% of the world's surface, as well as economic and industrial activities on land that affect the oceans. As a practical matter, it can apply to the entire world.”

    “Given the extremely disappointing track record of the UN and related agencies - blighted by endemic corruption, incompetence and anti-American policies - why would anyone want to entrust them irreversibly with these and other sweeping powers?”

    “LOST sets up mandatory international tribunals with foreign judges capable of interfering with our military and commercial activities on and affecting the high seas, even if our government and Supreme Court disagree.”

    “Its unaccountable International Seabed Authority, now the subject of explosive corruption allegations, can exercise jurisdiction over potentially billions of dollars worth of oil, gas, and minerals in international waters and extract global 'fees'(another word for taxes).”

    “Its production arm, known as 'the Enterprise', can demand money and sensitive technology from American businesses and transfer them to unfriendly countries and even 'national liberation movements.'”

    “LOST also establishes ominous precedents for U.N. management of Outer Space and the Internet, with potentially far-reaching and negative implications for U.S. economic and national security interests.”

    “Mr. Reagan viewed LOST as fatally flawed, 'an effort to promote global government at the expense of sovereign nation states - and most especially the United States.'”(emphases mine)

    Liberals, Elitists Use Armenia To Try To Defeat Our Troops! Is This TREASON?

    ““In the last days perilous times will come: For men will be… boasters, proud, despisers of good, TRAITORS, haughty… ”
    (2 Tim 3:2-5, emphasis mine)
    Led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., CA) and her anti-war, anti-Bush and anti-American cohorts, the Democrats are trying to defund and demoralize our troops in Iraq by passing a resolution in the House.

    The effect of this resolution, if approved by a majority in the House, will be to deny the United States use of its most important refueling and resupply base in Turkey. Hence, our efforts in Iraq will be closed down as our troops become starved for fuel, armaments, food, etc. By this backdoor and nefarious method, the Democrats and their Elite bed fellows will have achieved what has been impossible through a more straightforward and honest way such as up-or-down votes on defunding the war!
    Before I bring to your attention excerpts from articles which will explain this rather arcane matter, let’s discuss a very important question:

    “Is this effort TREASONOUS”? And, are its perpetrators “PATRIOTS”?

    Obviously, it is TREASON and its perpetrators are TRAITORS! Why? Because Treason is defined as “aiding or abetting one’s enemies.” Certainly trying to help the Islamofascists is, by that definition, TREASON!

    Next, Pelosi and Co. are not PATRIOTS! Why? Patriotism is defined as “loyally supporting one’s own country”. Is this what these schemers are trying to do? Is this their motivation? No! Their motivation is to bring about our nation’s DEFEAT and, especially, the defeat of President Bush and ALL REPUBLICANS so they can get a stranglehold on POWER! I ask you, “Is this a patriotic (and godly) motivation?”

    To sum up this part, this plot shows clearly that Pelosi and Co. are TRAITORS and UNPATRIOTIC partisans.

    You are probably wondering what is going on here? Here are some excerpts from good sources which will help you understand (as in the past, I urge you to read the entire articles to gain fuller understanding):

    “The president establishes American foreign policy and is commander in chief. At least that’s what the Constitution states.”

    “[T]he House Foreign Affairs Committee passed a resolution condemning Turkey for genocide against the Armenian people, atrocities committed nearly a century ago during the waning years of the Ottoman Empire.”

    “If the entire House approves the resolution, the enraged Ankara government could do everything from invading Iraqi Kurdistan…to curtailing U.S. over-flight privileges and restricting use of American military bases in Turkey.”(emphases mine)

    Entire Article: Congress' New Role: Undermining U.S. Foreign Policy by Victor Davis Hanson
    Also:

    “House Democratic leaders say they will insist on a floor vote on a resolution calling the 1915 massacre of Armenians by Ottoman Turks ‘genocide’, despite Turkish leaders saying it will seriously hurt relations and Republican warnings that the measure is ‘the most irresponsible’ action Congress can take.”

    “The issue is highly sensitive in Turkey, where it is a crime to describe the Armenian killings as genocide. Turkey recalled its ambassador to the U.S. after the committee vote and has threatened further retaliation.”

    “About 70 percent of U.S. air cargo headed for Iraq goes through Turkey, as does about one-third of the fuel used by the U.S. military there. U.S. bases also get water and other supplies carried in by Turkish truckers who cross into Iraq's northern Kurdish region.”

    Entire Article: Turkey, GOP warn against vote on genocide by Sean Lengell

    And further:

    “But if the resolution passes the House and Senate now, the Turks plan to evict us from Incirlik airbase in southeastern Turkey, to halt our military over-flight privileges and to shut down the supply routes into northern Iraq.”

    “That's what the Democrats are aiming at. This resolution isn't about justice for the Armenians. Not this time. It's a stunningly devious attempt to impede our war effort in Iraq and force premature troop withdrawals.”

    The Limbaugh Controversy:
    What's REALLY going on?

    “So justice is driven back,and righteousness stands at a distance;
    truth has stumbled in the streets, honesty cannot enter.” (Is 59:14)

    For about two weeks the political left (politicians and media) have been trying to DESTROY Rush Limbaugh. Their real target, however, is YOU!

    They want to silence talk radio so that Christian/conservative spokesmen and women will be forced off the air.

    Why would they want that? POWER! Unlimited TYRANNICAL Power! If talk radio is silenced, YOU will not hear or understand perspectives or facts contrary to those of the Liberal Elites and they will be able to remake America (and your children, grandchildren) in their image and according to their worldviews - which are PAGAN.

    For example, when these Elites tried to ram through the recent Immigration legislation (which is still in play as they try to pass bits and pieces of it in the dark of night), talk radio dissected it, understood the ramifications of it and warned YOU to get engaged. YOU rose up and the legislation failed (barely).
    The Elites cried out “Talk radio must be silenced! We must reinstitute the FAIRNESS DOCTRINE!” If the Democrats regain the White House and larger majorities in the House and Senate, talk radio's existence will be in jeopardy (this process has already started). And YOU will be left in the dark. TYRANNY will have been established!
    Even now they are badgering Rush Limbaugh's (and others) advertisers and radio stations to try to silence him.
    What happened? What's all the noise about? Below are excerpts from an article by his brother, David, which explains it. To get a deeper understanding than the excerpts provide, please read David's entire article and the “relevant” ones cited at the bottom:

    “My brother Rush has nothing for which to apologize concerning the left's maliciously manufactured 'phony soldier' scandal. He said nothing wrong and his accusers know it. There is no gray area here.”

    “Rush is fraudulently accused of calling soldiers who oppose the Iraq war 'phony soldiers.'”

    “Rush noted that the anti-war left makes celebrities of such frauds who falsely claim to have witnessed American soldiers committing atrocities in Iraq.”

    “Rush honors all U.S. soldiers for their courage and sacrifice, and because they represent the primary institution -- the United States military -- that safeguards the precious liberty that makes America the greatest nation in the world… He has a 20-year record on nationally syndicated radio demonstrating his unqualified devotion to America's fighting men and women.”

    “Rush has continued this discussion only to defend his honor and expose the nefariousness of his accusers, who are determined to discredit Rush and talk radio as a predicate to resurrecting the Fairness Doctrine.”

    “Having said that, it is important separately to point out that many in the accusers' camp, like Senators Harry Reid and John Kerry and Congressman John Murtha, have unambiguously impugned, undermined or demoralized our soldiers.”

    “They have perpetrated this phony scandal against my brother with actual malice. The ones behind the slander know they are lying; those merely echoing their words without bothering to investigate the facts are acting in reckless disregard for the truth.”

    Actual Malice by David Limbaugh

    Brethren and concerned American patriots, we are in an era when “evil is called good and good is called evil” (See Is 5:20). Lies and Liars abound, treacherous plots are concocted (see Prov 6:16-19), goodness and virtue are maligned and ignored, and evil people are “freely strutting about while honoring what is vile” (see Ps 12:18, 55:10-11; Ezek 8:6).

    So, bottom line, what's the “Rush Limbaugh matter” all about? Answers:
    1. Silencing critics of the Liberal Elites;
    2. Silencing and neutering YOU;
    3. Establishing TOTAL POWER forever;
    4. TYRANNY!

    Will We Wake Up to the Danger?
    Do We Have the Will?

    “Nevertheless I have this against you,
    that you have left your first love.” (Rev 2:4)

    As I have been watching the wonderful new documentary by Ken Burns about “The War” (7 episodes on PBS), it is painfully obvious that our country's attitudes are dramatically different now than during World War II. From my perspective - and that of the author [Linda Chavez] excerpted below - things are WORSE - MUCH WORSE! And, she feels the War on Terror will be “unwinnable” if all of us do not “wake up to the danger”:

    “The war in Iraq is unwinnable. It is becoming increasingly clear the United States cannot obtain decisive victory in any conflict that lasts longer than a few weeks or months… Politicians don't have the will to support a protracted war because Americans have no stomach for it.”
    “Wars require sacrifice, and we have become a nation unaccustomed to adversity. Our leaders have asked most of us to give up precious little to support the war effort.”

    “It would be easy to blame the politicians for their lack of will. But elected leaders generally reflect the views of the electorate. So why have we given up this fight? There is plenty of blame to go around.”

    “The administration has badly bungled the war, first by committing fewer troops than needed to provide security once we toppled Saddam, then by changing its rationale for the war.”

    “But the Democrats share responsibility as well. They have consistently put politics before the national interest. Their rhetoric has given aid and comfort to the enemy.”

    “In the end, however, if we lose this war, Americans themselves will be to blame. We're more focused on Britney Spears and Paris Hilton than on fighting terrorism… most Americans are not asked to share any burden to win this war.”

    “During World War II, our parents and grandparents made enormous sacrifices to ensure victory. They went without basic necessities, not to mention luxuries, so our troops would be properly fed and clothed… Newspapers put the nation's security first, never using the First Amendment as an excuse to reveal information that could jeopardize the war effort.”

    “It is difficult to see how we might turn this around, surely not unless Americans wake up to the danger.”(emphases mine)

    Entire article here: Where there's no will by Linda Chavez

    What “danger” is she talking about? It may sound extreme to you, but the answer can be summed up in one word - DESTRUCTION!

    That is the goal of our implacable enemy - the Islamofascists. It is their stated goal to destroy Israel, America and the rest of Western Civilization.

    Chavez lays much responsibility at the feet of the politicians and the media. For example, during WWII the New York Times would NEVER have leaked vital information to Hitler or Tojo. The politicians (especially the opposition party) would NEVER have sided with our enemies in public. Would Hitler have been invited to Columbia and received applause and affirmation as President Ahmadinejad did?

    This may sound harsh to you, but through the prophet Jeremiah, God warned the people of Judah and Jerusalem that He was going to bring disaster and destruction upon them (Jer 14:22-12).

    Why would He do such a terrible thing? Answer: They had forsaken Him and His Laws for a long time, worshipped idols and false gods and practiced other abominations such as child sacrifice[see today's abortion] (Jer 16:10-13; 19:4-5). He pleaded with them to “REPENT and turn from your evil ways… and reform”, but they refused, preferring to “continue with our own plans… and follow the stubbornness of (our) evil hearts” (Jer 18:7-12).

    So, will Americans wake up to our danger? Will God's prophets, pastors and priests awaken and be the watchmen they are supposed to be (Ezek 33:1-6)? Or, will we suffer the same fate as ancient Judah and Israel? We certainly deserve it. Maybe in His Wrath, God will remember Mercy (Hab 3:2).

    Act and Pray About the LOST [NOW!]

    “Woe to those who decree unrighteous decrees…” (Is 10:1a)

    Recently (Sept 12), we reported to you about the The Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST). Well, it's here! The Senate hearings start Thursday, September 27.
    Our recent article (available in our archives), with its accompanying excerpts and links, effectively explains the complexities and dangers of this Treaty.
    Below are some excerpts from another author - Frank Gaffney - who is the Treaty's most concerned and articulate critic:

    “Come Thursday, [September 27] the future of the United States Senate will begin to take shape. On that day, the Senate's Foreign Relations Committee will begin the first of two days of hearings on ratification of one of the most momentous international agreements in memory: the United Nation's Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST).”

    “[F]ew senators will have any idea what LOST entails before they are asked to vote for it.”
    “As of now, Treaty supporters expect to secure far more than the needed two-thirds vote required by the Framers.”

    “Should they superficially consider, and then consent to, ratification of the Law of the Sea Treaty, they will accelerate dramatically the permanent erosion of their own authority - and that of the Congress more generally.”

    “The Senate of the United States would be as irrelevant to that sort of world order as national parliaments in Europe have already become, thanks to the transfer of virtually all rulemaking authority to European Union bureaucrats in Brussels.”

    “The piece of the world in question starts with its oceans, which the Treaty calls an 'international commons' and part of 'the common heritage of mankind.'”

    “To accomplish these lofty goals, the Treaty creates entities with all the trappings of a government - an executive, a legislature and a judiciary. Unlike our constitutional republic, however, such institutions are run by the unelected and the unaccountable.”

    “[T]he internal waters (i.e., rivers, streams, etc.) and even land masses are claimed as within the jurisdiction of LOST agencies since what emerges from them in the air and water inevitably affects the 'marine environment.'”

    Entire article here: Reading the LOST compass

    Please take the time to read his whole article and then call your senators and PRAY, asking God to save us from being ensnared by this easily-avoidable trap.

    If 34 senators agree to filibuster the Treaty when it reaches the Senate Floor, it will die. PRAY ACCORDINGLY!

    Homosexuals, etc. Push ENDA Vote Soon

    “Son of man, do you see what they are doing, the great abominations that the house of Israel commits here, to make Me go far away from My sanctuary? Now turn again, you will see greater abominations.” (Ezek 8:6)

    ENDA stands for Employment Non-Discrimination Act (H.R. 2015). This anti-Christian legislation, the pride and joy of overtly homosexual Rep. Barney Frank (D., Mass.), has been the key objective of the homosexual/transgender/she-male activists for years.

    While the Republicans controlled the agenda of both houses of Congress, ENDA did not make progress. Things are different now that the leftists are in charge. Committee hearings have already been held in the House and a vote is expected the week of September 24 (SOON!).

    One of the most aggressive Christian ministries in Washington is the Traditional Values Coalition (TVC). For many years, TVC’s leaders have been vigorously and bravely fighting the wicked homosexual agenda. Below are excerpts of their analysis of the objectives of ENDA:

    “[P]rotecting ‘gender identity’ in the law will force businesses and non-profits to cater to the whims of cross-dressers, transsexuals, drag queens, and she-males”

    “ENDA will provide federally-protected status for ‘sexual orientation,’ which is defined in the bill as heterosexuality, bisexuality and homosexuality; and ‘gender identity,’ which is the sense of how a person ‘feels’ about his or her birth sex.”

    “Imagine being forced to hire or retain a person who goes through half of a so-called sex change operation? Should a business really have to deal with she-male demands? Or, to hire or retain a person who just ‘thinks’ he’s the opposite sex, but doesn’t ‘transition’ into another sex. The legal problems for employers will be insurmountable.”

    “[H]omosexual/bisexual/transgender activists seek to silence people of faith through the force of law.”

    “ENDA ostensibly provides a ‘religious exemption’ for denominations or organizations operated by denominations – but not other non-profit Christian or other religious organizations.”

    “This is a phony religious exemption. A Christian school, for example, would probably not be exempt under ENDA because its primary purpose is education, not the teaching or spreading of religious doctrine. A Christian day care center would not be exempt from ENDA; nor any Christian-owned for-profit business such as a Bible or book publisher.”

    (Entire article here: TVC Staffers Attend ENDA Hearing)

    Concerned Women for America warns:

    “This bill would force Christian, Jewish or Muslim business owners to hire people who openly choose to engage in homosexual or cross-dressing behaviors despite a sincerely held religious belief that those behaviors are dangerous, sinful and not in keeping with basic morality.”

    “The law is merely a tool in their never-ending quest to overturn America's Judeo-Christian norms regarding family, sex and marriage.”

    (Entire article here: Bill requires hiring 'gays,' cross-dressers)

    For the sake of your children and subsequent generations, and for our nation in general, please call your Member of the House of Representatives (202-224-3121) and ask him/her to vote “NO” on H.R. 2015!

    An anti-Christ spiritual wind is blowing in our government. Will we who love righteousness and hate evil resist these attacks on our culture?

    Please CALL and PRAY for the defeat of H.R. 2015! (And read both articles from which the excerpts above came.)

    UN Law of the Sea Treaty: Great Threat to USA

    “He frustrates the devices of the crafty,
    So that their hands cannot carry out their plans.
    He catches the wise in their own craftiness,
    And the counsel of the cunning comes quickly upon them.” (Job 5:12-13)

    I am compelled to bring to your attention a matter which, on the surface, seems complicated and arcane: The Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST).

    As King Solomon opined, “There is nothing new under the sun” (Ecclesiastes 1:9c)..

    This Treaty, designed during the Cold War by the Soviets and their allies, is one more effort by the UN to hijack US sovereignty and money and seriously hinder us technologically and militarily. It was very mistakenly signed by President Clinton after being rejected by President Reagan. It has never been ratified by the Senate, but the Democrats, ever anxious to give everything we have away to those who hate us, want to bring it to the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on September 27, and then hurriedly have the full Senate approve it soon thereafter.

    In order to explain this to you I am providing excerpts of an article:

    More US Sovereignty LOST to the UN, Law of Sea Treaty by Dan Gilbert

    “Now the United States Senate wants to give control of 70 percent of the earth's surface to the UN.”

    “Should the United States Senate ratify the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST), the UN would not only have control of the earth's oceans; the United States would turn its sovereignty over to an inept organization bent on diminishing the power of the United States and bolstering the power of tyrannical regimes hostile to the US.

    “Under LOST, the UN would have unprecedented power to tax and regulate anything that remotely affects the sea beds of the oceans.”

    UN jurisdiction however, may not stop at the shoreline. According to the UN, 'the greatest threat to the health of the marine environment comes not from oil spills at sea or ocean dumping, but from human activities on land.'”

    “Not only will this affect the US economically, but militarily as our security will be greatly compromised.”

    “Under current US law, the United States has the authority to stop and board any ship on the high seas suspected of carrying terrorists or WMDs. Under LOST, the United States would be required to have UN permission first, to stop a ship.

    “The US may also be required to provide detailed technological (and often sensitive) information on the required permits for any activity. LOST allows this information to be openly shared with other nations, even our enemies.”

    “LOST is another attempt by the UN and rogue nations to diminish the superiority of the US and redistribute wealth and power to third rate regimes set on destroying America. If the treaty is ratified by the Senate, all sovereignty of the American people is lost.”(emphases mine)

    Among the most disturbing aspects of LOST is that the US would potentially be committed to transfer militarily relevant technology to possibly unfriendly hands (e.g., China, Russia, Iran, Venezuela, North Korea, etc. - see Hezekiah's actions in 2 Kg 20:15-18).

    Also dangerous are the legal grounds it gives to nations who want to prevent us from interdicting and boarding ships, potentially carrying terrorists or weapons of mass destruction (WMD).

    Please read the article cited above and those deemed relevant below. Together they provide everything you need to know about LOST.

    After briefing yourself, would you be willing to contact your senators regarding LOST?

    Christian “Surge” Bringing Persecution

    “Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.” (Heb 13:3)

    There are several matters I want to bring to your attention:

    1. Christianity Finds a Fulcrum in Asia. This article describes the explosion of evangelism and conversions in China. It is a very exciting evaluation of what is taking place. For example, the author believes “the world will change beyond our capacity to recognize it… Islam will crumble beneath the challenge from the East” (i.e., the Chinese Christians).

      Please read this breathtaking analysis of what we can look forward to.

    2. China sweeping Christians out. In contrast to the above, this article reports the Chinese government's decision to expel foreign Christians in advance of the Bejing Olympics in 2008. It reports an “increase in arrests of Chinese house-church pastors and leaders who have been accused of being “suspects using evil cults!” In fact, a “Christian was jailed for no more than walking near the construction site of a hotel being prepared for the 2008 events.”
      We Christians in the West live so comfortably and have no idea how it is for Christians in the rest of the world and, in some cases, don't care!

      Please take the time to read this very interesting report.

    3. Testimony of Persecution in China. Here is a story of one person (Ren Peipei) and what happened to her for “sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ.” Through what she experienced we get a glimpse of how violent and unjust the anti-Christ spirit is in overtly pagan countries.

      Please read her story and pray for her and millions of our brethren like her.

    4. Voice of the Martyrs Update on Brethren Needing Prayer. This worthy organization regularly updates a list of situations around the world which involves individuals, families, churches, etc. who are suffering terribly and need your fervent prayers.

      You will find each story gripping and certainly worth your time in intercession. You may want to bookmark this page and refer back to it often. New information is provided there regularly.

    There are many more such articles and stories. In one sense, most are heartbreaking. Yet, they are also exciting because they give us a picture of how vigorously God is at work worldwide and that REVIVAL is on the move, especially in less affluent and comfortable regions.

    Praise the Lord! I hope you will use the information above to spring you and your friends into life and history - changing prayer

    Hallelujah! Prayers Answered and Koreans Released

    “Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone's chains were loosed.” (Acts 16:26)

    As you may already have heard, the South Korean government successfully obtained the release of the hostages. According to CBN news, twelve have already been set free, with the rest to follow soon. (See: Taliban Frees 12 South Korean Hostages - CBN News )

    This is a SUPERNATURAL act of God in response to your prayers and those of millions worldwide.
    We will be sending you information about others of our brethren who also are in great distress due to terrible persecution in various countries. Stay Tuned!
    Meanwhile, we can all rejoice for these hostages and their families!

    S. Korean and Middle Eastern Christians Need Your Prayers

    “But as for me, I would seek God,
    And to God I would commit my cause --
    Who does great things, and unsearchable,
    Marvelous things without number…
    But He saves the needy from the sword,
    From the mouth of the mighty,
    And from their hand.” (Job 5: 8-9, 15)

    A big part of our Christian responsibility is to work on behalf of our Brethren who face severe dangers worldwide. Once we are made aware of their plight, I believe it is SIN to look away and thoughtlessly carry on with our own selfish concerns (I Sam 12:33; Mt 25: 41-45).

    But, how can we help when we live so far away? PRAY! The prayers of righteous people are powerful and effective (Jms 5:16). Prayer changes history. God intervenes in the hearts, minds, wills and deeds of people, even His and our enemies (Job 5:12-16; Ps 33:18-19; 34:15-16; I Ptr 3:12).

    We have written recently about the S. Korean hostages. Most of them are still held in captivity by the Taliban. Please pray for their captors, that they will be touched by God and caused to show MERCY (Hab 3:2).

    We are linking you to several articles about other situations in Iraq, Bangladesh, Pakistan and Eqypt. These are not unique (for example, see Indonesia, Vietnam, Iran, North Korea, Sudan, Lebanon, etc). The headlines below speak for themselves.

    Pastors, Priests and Leaders, will you take up the righteous cause of leading your people to PRAY for these situations? These are real people, brothers and sisters who face dangers of which we can never conceive. They are objects of God's LOVE and deserve our concern, compassion and help.

    The American Left: Totalitarians on the March

    “So shall they fear
    The name of the LORD from the west,
    And His glory from the rising of the sun;
    When the enemy comes in like a flood,
    The Spirit of the LORD will lift up a standard against him.” ( Isa 59:19

    I have just read several articles about the American Left/Socialists/“Progressives”. Rather than giving you excerpts of each (as is our usual custom), I want to offer each in its entirety. Taken together, they give you an idea of how dangerous these groups are to our national health and your children's future:

    1. 'It Didn't Happen' by James Taranto, forecasts what we can expect to happen if we pull out of Iraq. The author details what happened in Southeast Asia after we left Vietnam. Millions of people were slaughtered. This is what will happen in Iraq if the “defeatists” on the left have their way. Ironically, these are the people who pretend to care about “the little people.” Actually, their primary concern is personal power and total control of everyone's life.

    2. 'Propaganda Redux' by Ion Mihai Pacepa, is an analysis of how “the Left is abetting America's enemies with its intemperate attacks on President Bush.” Written by a former Romanian communist intelligence officer, it explains how our enemies have always gaged how strong America is by evaluating “America's own respect for its president.”
      Apparently “sowing the seeds of anti-Americanism by discrediting the American president was one of the main tasks of the Soviet-bloc intelligence community.”
      This is exactly what the so-called “Progressives” (socialists) are doing today. They are cooperating with our enemies in an effort to secure our defeat, by constantly denigrating and mocking our president, which is an old communist strategy.

    3. 'Family Research Council Prayer Targets' is a Prayer Letter from the Family Research Council to its supporters. It describes the Homosexual Agenda and the Hate Crimes Bill of (guess who?) Senator Teddy Kennedy (D, MA). This bill, if it becomes law, will have the effect of silencing Biblical comments about the homosexual agenda and Islam.
      The Letter cites just how this has worked in Canada and elsewhere, causing pastors, bloggers, etc. to be fearful about telling the truth.

    Please Keep Praying for the Korean Hostages

    “We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed.” (2 Cor 4:8-9)

    “Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the LORD in ceasing to pray for you.” (1 Sam 12:23)


    The excerpts below speak for themselves. Please read them, as well as the entirety of the articles from which they come.
    Entire article:
    Taliban weigh hostage fate after Bush and Karzai meet by Sayed Salahuddin

    “Taliban leaders are deciding what to do with 21 Korean hostages after Afghan President Hamid Karzai and U.S. President George Bush ruled out making any concessions to free them…”

    "He [a Taliban commander] said the Taliban leadership would make the decision on the fate of the Christian volunteers.”

    “[H]e repeated the Taliban line that Bush and Karzai would be held responsible for whatever happens to the Koreans if the Afghan government does not release jailed Taliban members.”

    “The group had been invited to convert to Islam and the hostages told him they would study his offer. 'Again and again [We] have invited them to become Muslims and they said they will deliberate on it,' he said.”

    Entire article:

    Killing Korean Christians by Mark Tooley

    “Christian missionaries across the centuries, dating to the age of the Apostles, have long been careless about their safety, often to the point of martyrdom. Most especially, church groups in the West might be expected to express more outrage over the abduction and murder of their fellow Christians, 18 of whom are women.”

    “To date, groups such as the National Council of Churches in the U.S. have said nothing publicly about the outrages. Neither have most mainline denominations.”

    “But, at least in the U.S. and in the West, church officials are saying very little. The Swiss-based World Council of Churches issued a cryptic statement that declined even specifically to finger the Taliban as the killers and kidnappers. Their abduction is described almost in the passive voice.” (emphases mine)


    Do not for a moment fall for the propaganda that these are “extremists”! This is happening all over the globe.

    Take something closer to home. For example, BROOKLYN, N.Y.! Here are some excerpts from another article about how Muslims have tortured, beaten, slashed and otherwise assaulted someone over an “arranged” marriage gone awry.

    Entire article:

    Family Wouldn't let her marry for love by Nancie L. Katz
    “Her father promised her hand to a wealthy groom in their native Pakistan. But 15-year-old Miriam Khalid ran off with a poor Brooklyn boy instead. Now, the teen's outraged dad and three relatives are on trial on charges of torturing her boyfriend's uncle in a bid to find the young lovers.”

    “'They tied his feet with rope and handcuffed his hands together,' prosecutor Samantha Magnani told a jury yesterday in Brooklyn Supreme Court. 'They beat him. They threatened to slit his throat.'”

    “Magnani said both families attended the same Brooklyn mosque and all was well until two years ago. That's when Miriam, then 15, fell for Hussain's nephew, 19-year-old Usaman Rana. She moved in with him and his uncle.”

    “Khalid and his relatives ambushed Hussain on Aug. 10, 2006, as he entered his fourth-floor apartment on W. Sixth St.”

    “Magnani said the assault continued for several hours, with Hussain screaming in pain as he was struck with a pipe and a hammer and slashed with knives. One man held a gun to his head, threatening to kill him, she said. Finally, they hit his head so hard he passed out, she said.”

    So, what can we do about this? Here are several suggestions:

    1. Realize that the Islamists' desire to rule the world and install Sharia Law in your backyard is REAL;
    2. Spread the word and take steps locally to resist (Jas 4:7);
    3. Do not be deceived by the multicultural /tolerance-of-evil propaganda (Gal 6:7);
    4. PRAY! Despite what you think (“this could never happen in my backyard”), remember Brooklyn! It is happening here, now!
    5. Pray for God's Intervention. When God's people were surrounded and without hope, the Lord and His Hosts intervened. He will not be mocked! (Ex 14; 1 Sam 14:15-23, 17:50; 2 Chron 20:3-22; Acts 5:19, 12:5-11; Gal 6:7)
    6. Pray for our S. Korean brethren! Their lives may depend on our fervent prayers! (1 Sam 12:23)

    S. Korean Martyrs: Where is the Outrage?
    Where is the Prayer?

    “Thus says the LORD:

    'A voice was heard in Ramah,
    Lamentation and bitter weeping,
    Rachel weeping for her children,
    Refusing to be comforted for her children,
    Because they are no more.'” (Jer 31:15)

    Recently I was watching a TV news-show which receives comments. Regarding the Michael Vick dog-fighting frenzy, a person wrote that dog-fighting is “a disgusting act of savagery.” I asked my wife, “What would they say if they could ever see pictures of the remains of aborted babies?”

    May I also ask you pastors, priests, elders, deacons, and laypeople, are you “disgusted” about the wanton, senseless, fanatic killing of these kind and compassionate South Korean aid-workers by thugs who would just as soon be killing you and your children?

    Do you care, or are you too focused on your inner-church stuff and yourselves? Do you realize you have a Biblical obligation to pray for others? (1 Sam 12:23; Dan 9:3-23; 1 Tim 2:1-3)

    Do you know that if you look away and fail to pray for the persecuted church, you are sinning and risk being “GOATS”? (see Lev 20:4-5; Mt 25:41-43; 2 Cor 4:9; Heb 13:3; Col 4:18b)

    I know this is a hard word, but after studying the Bible with regard to abortion for many years, I know it is a true word.

    Please read excerpts below from Michelle Malkin's column and hopefully all of it:
    .
    The Martyrs No One Cares About It is very convicting.

    “The blood of innocent Christian missionaries spills on Afghan sands. The world watches and yawns.”

    “Where is the global uproar over the human rights abuses unfolding before our eyes?”

    “For two weeks, a group of South Korean Christians has been held hostage by Taliban thugs in Afghanistan…What was their offense? Were they smuggling arms into the country? No. Inciting violence? No. They were peaceful believers in Christ on short-term medical and humanitarian missions. Seventeen of the 23 hostages are females. Most of them are nurses who provide social services and relief.”

    “Two men, 29-year-old Shim Sung-min and 42-year-old Pastor Bae Hyeong-gyu, have already been shot to death and dumped in the name of Allah. Bae was a married father with a 9-year-old daughter. According to Korean media, he was from a devout Christian family from the island province of Jeju. He helped found the Saemmul Church south of Seoul, which sent the volunteers to Afghanistan.”

    “Across Asia, media coverage is 24/7. Strangers have held nightly prayer vigils. But the human rights crowd in America has been largely AWOL. And so has most of our mainstream media.”

    “The silence is rooted in viewing committed Christians as alien others. At best, there is a collective callousness. At worst, there is outright contempt.”

    “Curiously, those who argue that we need to 'understand' Islamic terrorists demonstrate little effort to 'understand' the Christian evangelical missionaries who risk their lives to spread the gospel -- not by sword, but through acts of compassion, healing and education.”


    Prayer works! God cares! If you care, please pray for these fine people.

    Korean Brethren Need Your Prayers!

    "The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me,
    Because the LORD has anointed Me…
    To proclaim liberty to the captives,
    And the opening of the prison to those who are bound.”(Isa 61:1)

    “Remember the prisoners as if chained with them -- those who are mistreated…”(Heb 13:3)

    As you may know, a South Korean Christian church group is being held hostage and slowly are being killed by the Islamic Taliban in Afganistan.

    Below are excerpts from an article about this tragedy. (See entire article here: Afghans Say They Won't Free Prisoners by Amir Shah.) You will also find links to relevant articles at the end.

    “South Korea and relatives of 21 kidnapped Koreans appealed for U.S. help Tuesday, but Afghanistan said for the first time it will not release insurgent prisoners - the Taliban's key demand to free the captives.”
    “Afghan police found the body of the second hostage slain since the Christian church group was seized nearly two weeks ago; the group's pastor was killed last week.”
    “The Taliban said more Koreans will die if its demands are not met by midday Wednesday. The militants have extended several previous deadlines without consequences, but killed 29-year-old Shim Sung-min on Monday after a deadline passed. His body, with a gunshot wound to the head, was found along a road in Andar district.”
    “'If the Kabul government does not release the Taliban prisoners, then we will kill after 12 o'clock,' Ahmadi said. 'It might be a man or a woman ... It might be one. It might be two, four. It might be all of them.'”(emphases added)

    Please cry out to God the Father of Jesus for His intervention! The lives of our brethren are at stake!

    It is hard for me to over-emphasize the importance of the following information. Please take the time to read and prayerfully consider what is below. ~ Harry

    Two Dangerous Forces Coming Your Way

    “Arise, cry out in the night,
    as the watches of the night begin;
    pour out your heart like water
    in the presence of the Lord.
    Lift up your hands to him
    for the lives of your children.” (Lam 2:19)

    I had planned to write about the fanatic, lunatic, ungodly plans of the jihadists. In fact, I am going to refer you to several articles about the plans of these “people”, plans which could be dangerous to your own personal health and that of your descendants. Please pay specific attention to the review of Jed Baffin's new book “In the Words of Our Enemies.” Its reviewer (Larry Thornberry) concludes:

    Here are a few excerpts about this topic:

    "“Yes, Virginia, there is Evil in the world. Americans - and many other Westerners - don't do well with evil. We don't understand it. We often don't recognize it when it stares us in the face, or even when it kicks us in the ribs.”

    “Affluent, congenial, welcoming America - a country flush with soccer moms with 'Just be Nice' bumper strips on their SUVs - has trouble even accepting that evil exists.”
    “Jed Babbin's new book is… an attempted wake-up call. He shows us evil as a growing concern, chapter and verse, in evil's own words. We should read and heed. Our future depends on how well we deal with the threats that face us.”

    “Yes, these people want to kill us, unless we bow to Allah, and they are willing to give up their own lives and their children's lives to accomplish this.”(emphasis mine)
    See entire review here:

    Book Review: In the Words of Our Enemies by Larry Thornberry.

    However, as your Watchman I want to alert you to an equally dangerous threat to our society - Hillary's plan to nationalize preschool. Here are some excerpts from an article about it

    “Clinton's proposal - introduced Thursday in the Senate - would give states $28 billion over five years to incorporate the nation's 120,000 preschools now run in firms, churches and storefronts into a government-run system.”

    “Her universal preschool idea is sparking heated debate over the back fence and in policy circles. The question is basic: How much control should the government have in raising and teaching our young children?”

    “It's Clinton's sharp tack to the left, arguing that government should take over small, independent preschools that make this super-nanny proposal reminiscent of her ill-fated single-payer health plan.” (emphases mine)

    See entire article here:
    Clinton's Hostile Preschool Takeover by Darcy Olsen and Bruce Fuller

    You may say, “Harry, here you go again - being an alarmist over what is really not worth a hiccup of concern.” My answer to that accusation is, “You do not understand what these superliberal/“progressive”/socialists want to do and how they operate.”

    Through government programs, they plan to CONTROL your families' lives, thoughts, education, beliefs, attitudes, health (or lack thereof), finances, etc.

    How do they go about this when most Americans don't want it? INCREMENTALLY! Little by little they take a bite out of our wonderful, God-given society until what's left would be unrecognizable to our founders, and appalling to those of us who detest tyranny and secular humanism.

    If these forces have their way, we will have a new abomination in our midst - the STATE as our Nanny, Master and chief Idol.

    State-mandated and run nursery school is the first step. The elimination of Home Schooling is in their sights. Silencing all opposing voices (and dissent) is their plan. (Where have we heard this before? Answer: The Fairness Doctrine - Hugo Chavez in Venezuela - Vladimir Putin in Russia - Iraq under Saddam, etc., etc.)

    What can we, the church of the Triune God (Father, Son and Holy Spirit), do about it?

    1. Awaken! Do Not Look Away!
    2. Resist; Speak Out, Vote and Be Active!
    3. Warn and Teach Others!
    4. Run for Office!
    5. Help Awaken Your Slumbering, Self-Involved Church!
    6. Repent, Cry Out, Beg and Implore God to Allow Us One More REVIVAL!

    Elite Leaders: “Masters of the Universe”?

    “But Jesus called them to Himself and said to them, 'You know that those who are considered rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them.'” (Mk 10:42)

    “Revive us, O God; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved.” (Ps 80:3)

    The quote in the title above came from the lips of Sen. Jeff Sessions (R., AL) during the run-up to the final vote on the Immigration bill which recently went down to an ignominious defeat. Sen. Sessions was referring to the high-handed, sleazy (my word, not his), superior perspective of those in charge of the procedures and the “debate” surrounding this contentious legislation (Senate co-conspirators had vigorously tried to ram this through with very limited and prejudged “debate”).

    But, isn't this what we can expect from elected and pagan political “Leaders” as well as major players in the media, entertainment and education Elites? Don't they believe that “they know best” and the average people are simpletons who (in democracies) have to be tolerated or in tyrannies (the majority of countries) are ignored, jailed, silenced or killed?

    Here are a few excerpts about this topic:

    "“As with the hubristic bureaucrats now running the EU, many British politicians see themselves as superior to the electorate” (Emmett Tyrrell Jr., 7/13/07). [May I add that the UN people have the same attitude];

    Mark Steyn refers to these Senate “Leaders” (of both parties) as “Emirs-for-life” who regarded the citizens who objected to the Immigration bill as “impertinent whippersnappers” (7/2/07);

    Rich Lowry noted that Sens. Trent Lott (R., Ms) and George Voinovich (R., Oh) reacted with “off-putting imperial pique” because people called their offices in opposition to the bill (6/29/07);

    Thomas Sowell writes that “the elitists who wanted to rush the Immigration bill through Congress “are now telling us with great condescension how foolish we were.” He contends the “elites are continuing to insult people's intelligence after being defeated.” (7/12/07);

    The Washington Post's David Broder (a major Elite player in D.C.) believes there's too much democracy out there and calls the defeat of the Immigration bill “mob rule” and Washington is “altogether too responsive to public opinion.” (7/5/07);

    Sen. Jim DeMint (R., S.C.) declares that when the “Leaders” brought this bill forward, “they declared war on the American people.” (see Robert Novak, 7/3/07);

    Paul Craig Roberts reports that “democracy is out of favor throughout the Western world. In the UK and Europe, peoples are being forced, despite their expressed oppositions, into an EU identity that they reject… (the elites) have decided on their own that the people do not know best and will be ignored” (6/18/07). [I might add our own American Elites are trying to force us into subservience to UN rule and a North American Union* with Mexico and Canada, one very similar to the EU.]

    I could continue with more quotes, but you get the idea. Perhaps the most obvious Elitist plot here in the USA is their looming attempt to SILENCE ALL DISSENT by shutting down TALK RADIO by way of reestablishing the so-called “Fairness Doctrine.” I have heard it said that if this ever happens, we can expect DECADES of ever-increasing tyranny and the purposeful annihilation of our Judeo-Christian culture. That sounds “alarmist.” It is! (See these links):

    Why the Fairness Doctrine is Anything But Fair by Adam Thierer
    Plan to Restore Fairness Doctrine Still on Track, Analyst Says by Randy Hall
    Democrats Look To Silence Conservative Talk Radio and Christian Radio: Not Fair At All by Gary Bauer

    So, what can we do?

    1. Be alerted! Be men and women of Issachar (I Chron 12:32);
    2. Elect people opposed to this destruction of our God-given rights;
    3. PRAY for REVIVAL! Pray for the Church to reawaken to its responsibility to defend our rights (see Neh 4:14).

    Immigration and Assimilation (Part II)

    “ Can two walk together unless they are agreed?” (Amos 3:3)

    “Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.” (1 Cor 1:10)


    As discussed recently, I believe an unspoken feeling caused so many Americans to resent the Immigration bill - a sense that the illegals entering the southern border (in general) are not interested in “assimilating” into our wonderful God-given culture.

    I read a comment of a 78 year-old Virginian who waited for hours for the Independence Day [July 4th] parade in D.C.

    “What a great country,” he exclaimed. Do the illegals and their supporters in Congress and the Big Media agree?

    Michelle Malkin has assembled comments by the people who founded this country. They warned against indiscriminate immigration and the resultant division of the nation into hostile factions.

    Below are excepts from her column and links to others which are very relevant:

    "“Amnesty is dead. Now, let's talk about the other 'A' word. It's the word and the concept completely abandoned during the immigration debate: assimilation.”

    “But now that they've lost their amnesty fight, will they still embrace American symbols and traditions? Or was it all for show? And what of all that talk of illegal aliens being willing to study citizenship and civics? And take English classes? Why must they be bribed with the promise of a temporary guest worker visa and mass governmental pardon in order to adapt to our way of life”

    “[T]he founding fathers were emphatically insistent on protecting the country against indiscriminate mass immigration. They insisted on assimilation as a pre-condition, not an afterthought.”

    “George Washington, in a letter to John Adams, stated that immigrants should be absorbed into American life so that 'by an intermixture with our people, they, or their descendants, get assimilated to our customs, measures, laws…'”

    “In a 1790 speech to Congress on the naturalization of immigrants, James Madison stated that America should welcome the immigrant who could assimilate, but exclude the immigrant who could not readily 'incorporate himself into our society.'”

    “Alexander Hamilton wrote in 1802: 'The safety of a republic depends essentially on the energy of a common national sentiment; on a uniformity of principles and habits; on the exemption of the citizens from foreign bias and prejudice; and on that love of country which will almost invariably be found to be closely connected with birth, education and family.'”

    “The survival of the American republic, Hamilton maintained, depends upon 'the preservation of a national spirit and a national character.'”

    “[F]ulfilling these fundamental duties is impossible without an orderly immigration and entrance system that discriminates in favor of those willing, as George Washington put it, to 'get assimilated to our customs, measures [and] laws.'” (emphases mine)

    Theodore Roosevelt, Immigration and Assimilation.

    “If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand. (Mark 3:24-25)

    “I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought.” (1 Cor 1:10)


    Regarding the immigration bill, one of the things which most irritates the American public is that (in general) it's obvious the illegal aliens seem to have NO INTEREST in ASSIMILATING into our Judeo-Christian, Eurocentric culture. They give the appearance of wanting to come here to earn money, continue to speak Spanish, hang out together, ignore our laws and benefit from our welfare system (sometimes on a fraudulent basis).

    In 1907, President Theodore Roosevelt had the following to say about this:

    "In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else; for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin.

    But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American…

    There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all.

    We have room for but one flag, the American flag ... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language. And we have room for but one sole loyalty, and that is a loyalty to the American people." (Emphases mine)

    Bush's Immigration Attitude
    and His Emotional Ties to Hispanics.

    “The princes of Zoan have become fools; The princes of Noph are deceived; They have also deluded Egypt…” (Isa 19:13)

    “Great men are not always wise...” (Job 32:9a)

    For a long time, I have been puzzled by President Bush's unbridled determination to unleash millions, upon millions of poor, illiterate, unskilled, often sickly illegal Mexican aliens upon our nation. For many reasons, it has not made sense to me.

    Until now!

    Columnist Diana West has come up with ONE very cogent reason (probably among several) - Bush's EMOTIONS. He is emotionally tied to this group of people in “his gut”. Over the decades of his life in Texas, he has experienced Hispanics (especially Mexicans) to be decent, hardworking and humane.

    Diana West (and I) agree this is true of a large percentage of Mexicans. But, this is true of “half the world's population”. Do we construct a new immigration policy on this emotionalism?

    Below are some excerpts from Diana West's intriguing proposition. Please, in order to truly grasp this perspective, read her whole column here: The President's Gut.

    “Now that the president has tried to revive the comatose Senate amnesty bill, at least as big a question…is why on earth he would want to… [W]hy this particular attempted win, which his political base sees only as betrayal?”
    “'It's a very emotional issue.' That's what the president says by way of describing the acid turmoil his 'comprehensive' immigration reform push has caused, particularly among conservatives.”
    “[I] get the impression he (wants) to dismiss his opponents' objections as volcanic eruptions of feeling, rather than legitimate and reasonable arguments.”
    “[I]mmigration reform is a very emotional issue for Mr. Bush himself. Too emotional. When it comes to illegal aliens - in particular, illegal aliens from Mexico - the man seems to be governed by his gut. And that, of course, is no way to govern.”
    “A strong emotional thread connecting Mr. Bush to the issue comes through stories about his beloved Mexican-born housekeeper/nannies, and through stories about his political associates with Mexican roots, such as Attorney General Alberto Gonzales…”
    “'When you grow up in Texas like... I did,' Mr. Bush recently told McClatchy Newspapers, 'you recognize the decency and hard work and humanity of Hispanics.'”
    “A lovely testimonial, but hardly a criterion on which to offer amnesty to some 12 to 20 million illegal aliens, even if they are mainly Hispanic. Half the world's population are undoubtedly just as decent, hard working and humane, but that doesn't qualify the non-Hispanic billions (who haven't broken innumerable U.S. laws) for citizenship - at least not yet.”
    “Mr. Bush not only imagines comprehensively reforming the illegal, mainly Hispanic millions into citizens, but also 'assimilating' them into Americans.”
    “The president doesn't seem to have noticed that the multicultural states of America long ago junked the 'assimilation' process as being 'Euro-centric,' 'racist' and worse.”
    “From his inviolate state of oblivion, Mr. Bush views 'a backlash against newcomers' as being the only conceivable threat to the assimilation process - and more. 'I am deeply concerned about America losing its soul,' he said, bemoaning the country's opposition to illegal immigration. 'I am worried that a backlash to newcomers could cause our country to lose its great capacity to assimilate newcomers.'”
    “This has nothing to do with Mr. Bush's 'backlash' bogeyman - which, frankly, sounds like another slap at Americans who want U.S. sovereignty upheld. Maybe Mr. Bush is just being emotional. But it's clear where his emotions lie, and it's not with conservatives. And I don't think they stop at the border, either.”

    P.S. Soon I will send you some 100-year-old quotations from President Theodore Roosevelt about aliens and citizenship. They encapsulate why so many people are repelled by this Immigration bill.

    Immigration Bill: The Fix Is In!
    Kiss Our Nation “Goodbye”

    “You know that those who are considered rulers over the Gentiles lord it over them, and their great ones exercise authority over them.” (Mk 10:42)

    Hi, everybody! Sorry for being so quiet for the past ten days! I have been trying to get the “scoop” on the status of the so-called “reforms” in the Immigration bill. My report to you is:

    THE FIX IS IN!

    As you will read (and I pray you do) in the linked column: Who's Winning the Immigration Battle? by William Rusher, the Elites are IGNORING you and me and doing whatever they deem best for themselves and their associates, despite the massive bipartisan objections of the voters who have been phoning, rallying, writing and visiting offices, all to no avail. The Elites simply DO NOT CARE what we think!

    Rather than express more of my disgust, let me give you some excerpts from Rusher's column. Please read it all, because he sums up all the problems very succinctly. If the bill passes, you, I and our children can kiss our orderly, law-abiding Christian-based nation completely “goodbye”!

    “The [pro-'reform' bill] coalition is simply too powerful for anything as unfocused as mere American public opinion to resist for long. For one thing, it includes the entire Democratic Party…The Democratic strategists realize that if they can only put the 12 million or more illegal aliens already here on a track to eventual citizenship, two-thirds of them can be depended to vote Democratic when they get there…That's a net gain of 4 million votes in every national election after roughly 2020, and that figure will only grow as more Hispanics flood in under the other provisions of the 'reform.'”

    “The other wing of the coalition consists, paradoxically, of people who mostly vote Republican. But they are businessmen who depend on cheap immigrant labor to fatten their profits, and who are willing to do whatever it takes to keep the current influx of Mexican laborers coming. Their spiritual ancestors were the pre-Civil War slaveowners, who really knew about cheap labor. The businessmen in question are hugely influential in the Republican Party.”

    “Now, there is nothing inherently wrong with immigration, or with Hispanic immigration. It is perfectly true that America has always welcomed immigrants, and has prospered hugely from their contributions. But the flood of Hispanic immigration in the past three decades, both legal and illegal, has simply overwhelmed the normal assimilative capacities of American society.”

    [I]t will transform the United States into a bilingual, bicultural hodgepodge with quite possibly fatal internal divisions.”

    “'Border enforcement' has been a standing joke for 20 years.”“And bear in mind that when the 'reform' bill is finally passed (as it very probably will be), its enforcement will be in the hands of the Democratic party, which seems likely to sweep the 2008 elections to spank George Bush for Iraq. How much of that 'fence', do you suppose, will actually be built on the Democrats' watch?”

    “We are in the grip of a coalition of businessmen without foresight and politicians without scruples. And anyone who lives through the next fifty years will see the United States transformed from a proud English-speaking nation in the West European tradition into a polyglot multicultural mess.”(emphases mine)

    Prayer

    “Lord, we welcome people from foreign lands. But the borders You established (Acts 17:26), must be respected and honored, as well as the Rule of Law. Many of our senators seem to be feathering their own nests and ignoring what seems orderly, wise and gracious as well as the people who elected them.
    Please, Lord, help us - for 'the help of man is worthless' (Ps 60:11). In Jesus' Name, Amen.”

    With “Friends” Like Edwards and the Media,
    Who Needs Enemies?

    “Then some came and told Jehoshaphat, saying, 'A great multitude is coming against you from beyond the sea, from Syria.'” (2 Chron 20:2)

    Can you believe the blindness and stupidity of former Senator John Edwards (D., N.C.)? With a straight face under his $400 haircuts he asserts that “There is no war on terror - it's for bumper stickers.”

    This is in the midst of the attempted slaughter of our soldiers at Fort Dix, N.J., by Muslims from Albania and the planned attack by Muslims on JFK's oil tanks. By God's Grace these plots were exposed and foiled (Mt 10:26; Jn 3:25).

    Can you believe it? The liberals and Democrats do not believe there are Islamic terrorists dedicated to murdering your family and mine because we are “infidels.”

    Can you believe the New York Times buried the JFK bomb story on page 30? According to Gary Bauer, “CBS and one other major network managed to report the story without once mentioning the word 'Muslim' or 'Islam'”(emphasis mine). It is pitiful and deceitful!

    Well, what will these people do about the information discovered by Todd Bensman of the San Antonio Express - News?

    As I reported in my last Alert, he has exposed the bribery - induced human pipeline for Islamic terrorists from Syria to Mexico to Texas. They come from state sponsors of terrorism (see excerpt #6 below).

    The answer to my last question is, “Nothing!” They are the Elites and Bensman's stuff is very politically incorrect. The liberals in general, and media specifically, have an agenda: embrace Islam, ruin President Bush's reputation, destroy what's left of the Judeo-Christian culture in the Western world, and obtain POWER, at all costs! They will knowingly (and blindly) sacrifice anyone or anything to do this, because pagans' primary goal is POWER.

    So, please keep your pastor and yourself informed! Be Watchmen! Warn! Challenge! And most importantly, PRAY!

    Here are excerpts from Bensman's report:

    “Al Nawateer restaurant (in Damascus, Syria) is a place where dreams are bartered and secrets are kept…where clandestine human smuggling rings have sprung up to help refugees move on - often to the United States.”

    “They come to be solicited by someone who, for the right price, will help them obtain visas from the sometimes bribery-greased consulates of nations adversarial or indifferent to American security concerns.”

    “Americans from San Antonio to Detroit might find themselves living among immigrants from Islamic countries who have come to America with darker pursuits than escaping war or starting a new life.”

    “U.S.-bound illicit travel from Islamic countries, which started long before 9-11 and includes some reputed terrorists, has gained momentum and worried counterterrorism officials”

    “'But it's easy. You fly to Moscow, then Cuba and from there to Guatemala.'”

    “The 43 countries of interest are singled out because terrorist groups operate there. Special-interest immigrants are coming all the time, from countries where U.S. military personnel are battling radical Islamist movements, such as Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia and the Philippines. They come from countries where organized Islamic extremists have bombed U.S. interests, such as Kenya, Tanzania and Lebanon. They come from U.S.-designated state sponsors of terror, such as Iran, Syria and Sudan.”(emphases mine)

    Breaching America: How Terrorists Are “Immigrating” Through Our Borders

    Re: Irresponsible Leaders, Thus says the Lord:

    “His Watchmen are blind; They are all ignorant; They are all dumb dogs; They cannot bark.” (Is 56:10)

    I am linking you to the first of a very courageous and illuminating series of articles by Todd Bensman, a writer for the San Antonio Express-News.
    Perched on the Mexico - United States Border, Bensman has written a series called:

    “Breaching America: The potential danger of illegal immigration from Islamic countries.” He has actually traveled to Syria and followed the route which TERRORISTS use to enter (be smuggled into) our country.

    Does anyone care? President Bush? Senators Kennedy and McCain? Democrat/Republican Supporters of the Amnesty Bill? Major Media?

    Obviously not! As you will see in Part 3 of this devastating report, Islamic terrorists from countries of “special interest” can follow the pipeline and cross our southern border with ease.

    Below are excerpts from Bensman's introductory article. Please click here to read the whole piece. It is horrifying!

    ““Americans from San Antonio to Detroit might find themselves living among illegal immigrants from Islamic countries who have come to America with darker pursuits than escaping war or starting a new life.”

    “U.S.-bound illicit travel from Islamic countries, which started long before 9-11 and includes some reputed terrorists, has gained momentum and worried counterterrorism officials as smugglers exploit 2 million Iraq war refugees. The irony is that the war America started to make itself safer has forced more people regarded as security threats toward its borders.”

    “A stark reminder of U.S. vulnerability at home came this month when six foreign-born Muslims, three of whom had entered the country illegally, were arrested and accused of plotting to attack the Army's Fort Dix.”
    “Politically immigration can be a faceless issue. But beyond the rhetoric, the lives of real people hang in the balance. A relatively small but politically significant number are from Islamic countries, raising the specter, some officials say, of terrorists at the gate.”

    “The story of Boles' journey to America - born over a plate of tabouli, orchestrated by a polite smuggler and culminating with an early-morning river crossing at Los Indios - serves as a lens on the pipeline and raises worrisome questions.”

    “Who else besides Boles has crossed the Rio Grande, and with what intent?”

    Amnesty Bill: Will Borders Really Be Enforced?

    Do you believe God cares about borders, boundaries, and “landmarks”? Yes, I can say emphatically that He does! In fact, He establishes them all:

    “And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings.” (Acts 17:26 - emphasis mine)

    Rush Limbaugh on Monday told his audience that conservatives INSTINCTIVELY know there is something absolutely wrong with the Immigration/Amnesty Bill which President Bush, Ted Kennedy and John McCain (strange bedfellows?) are trying to ram through the Senate as fast as they can.

    Those who raise legitimate question about the Bill are excoriated as “racists”, “nativists”, “restrictionists”, etc.

    I believe Rush is right! Personally I have smelled something terribly wrong about this so-called “compromise” from the outset. So, I have set out to find information for us in order to truly grasp “what's happening.” In fact, quite a bit is happening which we are not being told!

    Today, I will begin to link you to articles written by people I have come to respect. One by one they will open our eyes to some of the sad truths imbedded in the Bill.

    One of the most important questions and doubts many people have is - “Will the 'enforcement' provisions ever be enforced?” In this regard, I submit to you a column by Cal Thomas who says:

    “I wish I could believe the president and those senators who claim their agreement on immigration legislation will 'fix' the problems of open borders and illegal aliens. I can't, because the public has had no input into the measure.”

    “Only after the border is secured, say the senators and White House, will the guest-worker program kick in. Again, I wish I could believe this, but when it comes to immigration, I don't trust either party. It's a safe bet that once the U.S. government legalizes the illegals, many will not abide by the conditions. What then?”

    “Many who broke our laws to get here will be allowed to stay. A new immigrant category called the 'Z Visa' will be introduced.”

    “'Z Visa' holders can remain in their 'Z' status indefinitely, meaning they never have to pursue a 'pathway to citizenship.' They would also be allowed to get Social Security numbers and benefits from some welfare programs.”

    “Radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh predicted last week that if the Senate draft legislation becomes law 'there is an 80 percent chance that Hillary Clinton will be the next president of the United States ... we are doomed in '08.' He predicted this would be 'the last straw as far as the Republican base is concerned in being able to trust Republicans that it elects to represent them'”

    “The stakes are enormous, for the country and for the future of the Republican Party. It's not worth passing this measure just so both sides can claim 'victory', if the victory is a Pyrrhic one. (emphases mine)”

    Please take time to read Cal's very informative column. (See Camouflaged amnesty - Commentary - The Washington Times, America's Newspaper) Cal is a patriotic Christian Conservative.

    More to come! Stay tuned! We are fighting for our country!

    Time Bomb in Our Midst!

    Ever since 9/11, we have been focused on terrorists from abroad. However, it seems young American Muslims are being recruited to carry out suicide bombings here in America.

    Please read these two articles from the New York Post:

    TIME BOMBS IN OUR MIDST
    and
    A HAIR-RAISING POLL

    You'll find an excerpt from one of them below:

    “One out of four young U.S. Muslims believe suicide bombings against innocent civilians are OK to defend Islam, a disturbing new poll revealed yesterday.”
    “The most shocking responses came when those surveyed were asked whether suicide bombings and other violence against civilians can be justified 'in order to defend Islam from its enemies.'”
    “Thirteen percent said it can be justified, at least on rare occasions.”
    “Among those under age 30, that 13 percent doubled to 26 percent.”

    Unfortunately, Mr. President, We Don't Believe You!

    Yesterday, I attended a meeting about the immigration legislation, at which Tony Snow and Secretary of Homeland Security Michael Chertoff spoke. They passionately defended the President's determination to enforce border laws.

    The attitude of the conservatives with whom I sat, was more than skeptical - it was total disbelief, based on President Bush's record to this point.

    Here's an excerpt from an article about this issue which I believe is very balanced:

    “But one thing has struck me about the immigration debate that I have found difficult to reconcile with reality: the unquestioning belief by conservatives, who are usually skeptical about the effectiveness of most government-run programs, that this time the bureaucrats can solve our border problem.”

    Amnesty? Contact the Elites!

    Please take the time to contact either your senator and/or the Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Ky) asking them to deal effectively with the Immigration/Amnesty Bill. The Elites are trying desperately to legislate this almost in secret.

    If you are concerned about terrorists, our borders, the rule of laws, national sovereignty, the size of the welfare state and taxes, and the elections of 2008, please help these Elites hear from you.

    Senator McConnell's contact page is:

    Was Osama Right? Are We That “Weak”?
    "O Lord, let me not be ashamed; let not my enemies triumph over me" (Ps 120:2)

    I am sending you excerpts of an outstanding article by Princeton Professor Bernard Lewis. (You may remember I cited his books in Pastors and Leaders: “Sound the Alarm” - Part II. You can view this in our archives - click here and scroll down). Mr. Lewis' works are among the best for providing a good understanding of historical and contemporary Islam).
    His column is subtitled “Islamists always believed the US was weak. Recent political trends won't change their views.”
    As you will see in both the excerpts below and in the whole column (see article here), he asserts, “If they are right, the consequences - both for Islam and for America - will be deep, wide and lasting (emphasis mine). YIKES!
    It seems that the socialist, pacifist, “tolerant” and anti-Christian push for DEFEAT in Iraq and elsewhere will probably result in dire consequences for us. We have become a soft, compromised society and Church, easy pickings for aggressive elements in Islam (or China!)
    The Church should be ASHAMED of its passivity. God will require an account from His ordained Watchmen - “Why didn't you warn, equip and lead your people?”
    Here are some excerpts from Lewis' column.

    “If you did anything to annoy the Russians, punishment would be swift and dire.”

    “If you said or did anything against the Americans, not only would there be no punishment; there might even be some possibility of reward, as the usual anxious procession of diplomats and politicians, journalists and scholars and miscellaneous others came with their usual pleading inquiries: 'What have we done to offend you? What can we do to put it right?'”

    “Stage One of the jihad was to drive the infidels from the lands of Islam; Stage Two--to bring the war into the enemy camp, and the attacks of 9/11 were clearly intended to be the opening salvo of this stage.”

    “The response to 9/11, so completely out of accord with previous American practice, came as a shock, and it is noteworthy that there has been no successful attack on American soil since then.”

    “The U.S. actions in Afghanistan and in Iraq indicated that there had been a major change in the U.S., and that some revision of their assessment, and of the policies based on that assessment, was necessary.”

    “More recent developments, and notably the public discourse inside the U.S., are persuading increasing numbers of Islamist radicals that their first assessment was correct after all, and that they need only to press a little harder to achieve final victory.”

    “It is not yet clear whether they are right or wrong in this view. If they are right, the consequences--both for Islam and for America--will be deep, wide and lasting.”

    Christian Passivity? Pastors, Call Us to Battle!

    ““Again, if the trumpet does not sound a clear call, who will get ready for battle?” (I Cor 14:8)

    I was pondering the “spiritual, cultural and political state of the Union” with a friend recently and we came to a conclusion which the CHPA has been trumpeting for years -

    “Without the pastors sounding a clear call for battle, we have no hope.”

    We all know the list of dangers very well. The question is: “What are we going to do about it?” Or even more appropriately: “What are our pastors, priests and leaders going to do about it?”

    Please read the article to which I am linking you, excerpts of which you will find below. It talks about Christian “Political Passivity.”

    “It's not only the left that sounds the alarm when Christians 'jeopardize the separation of church and state' by engaging in political action. Some Christians object, too. One evangelical leader offered this stern warning: 'There should not be even a hint of anything political in our public discourse.'”

    “This may sound spiritual in some circles, but it can be devastating to the public good. Without question the Gospel has supernatural power to change lives, and those changed lives can change the world. William Wilberforce, Martin Luther King, and Mother Teresa come immediately to mind.”

    “The New Testament tells us that government is for 'the punishment of evildoers and the praise of those who do right.' The book of Proverbs reminds us that, 'The king gives stability to the land by justice' and, 'The execution of justice is joy for the righteous.'”

    “Biblical teaching is clear: God intends government to use law to enforce morality. Informed Christian people are essential to that process because the concept of justice that grounds good government can be twisted by evil men in power. If the Church doesn't stand in the gap giving substance to the words 'good' and 'evil,' then nothing prevents leadership from reversing the definitions, praising evil and punishing good. Tragically, this is already happening.”

    “Does the Scripture teach we should be silent on anything that doesn't have to do with saving souls? Is it God's desire that we abandon everything this side of the grave as profane and utterly lost? Is nothing in this life valuable, important, or worth redeeming?”

    “The current understanding of separation of church and state-the view that the state is thoroughly secular and not influenced by religious values, especially Christian ones-was completely foreign to the first 150 years of American political thought.”

    Please give this information to your leaders. They are the prophets. The Book of Proverbs teaches “without a prophetic vision the people perish (29:18a).” Brethren, our nation is perishing.

    Understanding the Violence at Virginia Tech

    “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness in God's sight…The Lord knows that the thoughts of the wise are futile.” (I Cor 3:19-20)

    Pundits and politicians around the nation (and the world) are stumbling all over themselves (and us) to try and make sense of the violence, mayhem, and murder at Virginia Tech, which has also been happening in a variety of forms elsewhere for at least two or three decades.

    However, according to the above Scripture, these “analysts” could not possibly make cogent observations or recommendations because they are “fools”. See also:

    “The fool has said in his heart, 'There is no God.'” (Ps 14:1)
    “And in them the prophecy of Isaiah is fulfilled, which says: 'Hearing you will hear and shall not understand, And seeing you will see and not perceive'” (Mt 13:14)

    “The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.” (Prov 1:7)

    “A fool has no delight in understanding, But in expressing his own heart.” (Prov 18:2)

    As a Christian who “fears God”, let me look at what happened in Blacksburg, Va., and elsewhere, through the lens of “spiritual discernment”:

    1. Murderer Cho was obviously VERY DEMONIZED; the “business” of demons is to kill and destroy (Jn 8:44;10:10a); one look at his behavior and his videos confirms this diagnosis;

    2. Because the United States (including much of the Virginia Tech Community) has turned away from the Lord and His Ways, violence and mayhem are multiplying at an astonishing rate (Is 59:all);

    3. The pundits, etc., have led the way in denying either the existence of the Lord or His relevance in the ongoing affairs of any nation; they have substituted other gods: the idols of relativism and secular humanism; as a result, we are told we are our own little gods and can do whatever seems or feels good in our own eyes(Judges 17:6; 21:25b); therefore, we are awash in deception, ignorance, selfishness, pride, rebellion, political correctness, bombs and bomb threats, innocent bloodshed, angry outbursts, riots, mayhem, multiculturalism, confusion, gross immorality, etc., etc., etc.; our land is “defiled” and it is “vomiting us out”(Lev 18:27-28); this is one of the prime reasons for what has been taking place in Virginia and elsewhere!

    4. The mass slaughter of innocent children through ABORTION has caused a spirit of murder and bloodshed to be released throughout the land and the world; murderer Cho's rampage was the most recent example; please see my most recent column for more about this.

    So, what can we take away from this (abbreviated) “spiritually discerned” analysis?

    1. Pay no attention to most, (thankfully not all) of the pundits, because they are “fools” spitting out false ideas; they are “false prophets” who spread their thoughts far and wide and deceive millions - see Ezek 13:1-9;

    2. We must understand the Scriptures and get the “Mind of Christ”(Mk 12:24; I Cor 2:16);

    3. Rather than blame the pagans, as Christians we must REPENT for allowing this to happen! The nation, for which we are responsible (Ezek 22:30; I Tim 2:1), is almost lost to the devourer (I Ptr 5:8). The church, through our pastors, priests, etc., must recognize the times;

    4. Most importantly, our pastors and leaders must warn and call us to significant acts of heroism just as Nehemiah did:
    “And I looked, and arose and said to the nobles, to the leaders, and to the rest of the people, 'Do not be afraid of them. Remember the Lord, great and awesome, and fight for your brethren, your sons, your daughters, your wives, and your houses.'”(Neh 4:14)

    We should be engaged in this great spiritual battle. The pundits are fools; they cannot understand reality. However, if you are a Christian, you can. GET TO WORK!

    196. Va. Tech Shootings and Abortion!

    Senate and House Democrats piously ordered a minute of silence for Monday's victims at Virginia Tech. Sen. John Warner (R-Va) called the killings “incomprehensible.”

    Yet, looking at it Biblically, it is very comprehensible! “Harry, how can you say such an awful thing? How can you be so sure?” you may ask.

    Answer: The country is reaping what it has been sowing since 1973 when it “Legalized” the slaughter of innocent babies (abortion).

    From God's perspective, the purposeful killing of innocent children (and adults) releases “pollution” and “defiling” upon the land - what some would call “a spirit of murder or bloodshed.”

    If you find this extreme, listen to the Lord's own words (not mine!) about how He regards rampant “innocent bloodshed” (which is what abortion is):

    “They shed innocent blood and the land was polluted with blood…they were defiled” (Ps 106:38-39)
    “Thus the guilt of bloodshed be upon you” (Moses commenting on the shedding of innocent blood) (Dt 19:10)
    “their blood shall return upon the head of Joab and upon the head of his descendants forever”(I Kg 2:33)
    “So you shall not pollute the land. Blood defiles the land” (Nu 36:33)
    Most famously, the leaders of the Israelites cursed themselves while calling for Jesus' blood: “His blood be on us and our children.” (Mt 27:25)

    Besides the general terms “polluted” and “defiled”, the Lord, speaking through Isaiah, describes what specifically can happen within cultures which promote “innocent bloodshed”(abortion):

    “we look for light but there is darkness…we grope like the blind… we stumble as dead men… and moan sadly… oppression and revolt… words of falsehoodjustice is turned back and righteousness stands afar off… equity (fairness) cannot enter and truth fails” (Is 7a-15).

    So, to put it in a nutshell, when innocent bloodshed (think abortion and millions of slaughtered babies) is sanctioned and promoted by the state, the above curses begin to happen. As long as our nation (and others like Russia, Israel, etc.) continue to be drenched in blood, incidents such as took place at Virginia Tech, Columbine, and the Amish schoolhouse will continue to take place and even multiply.

    When the greatest promoters of abortion (liberal Elites in both parties, academia, feminists, the media, the Supreme Court, entertainers, etc.) ignore their own accountability and piously bow their heads, it is a travesty. They are so blind, deceived and held captive by their lusts and the abortion industry.

    We have all noticed the alarming increase in mayhem and violence in our country. WHY are we puzzled by it? Answer: We do not know and understand God, His Ways, and His Word (Mt 22:29)! He is very clear about “the shedding of innocent blood” and child sacrifice (see above). The “talking heads” are busy trying to figure out some way to stem the violence.

    Three things will do it! These will prevent future Virginia Tech - type tragedies:

    1. Turning back to God - His Ways, His Laws and His Scriptures;
    2. Repenting publicly for the bloodshed;
    3. Stopping all abortions and experiments on fetal cells.

    If we do the above, the violence will stop. Nothing else will suffice!
    May it be!!

    195. The Duke Case: Biblical Justice Served
    “You shall do no injustice in judgment. You shall not be partial to the poor, nor honor the person of the mighty. In righteousness you shall judge your neighbor” (Lev 19:15)

    We are all relieved to see the three unfortunate Duke lacrosse players set free from the wicked false charges which have held them captive for so long. But why are we so delighted? Answer: Biblical Justice was served and this is pleasing to God and, therefore, to our spirits as well.

    Consider the following:

    1. To further his career and gain reelection, the local District Attorney, against all evidence, purposely believed false charges from a poor black woman in order to gain favor with her community and the liberal local media; that constitutes accepting “bribery” which is outlawed by God(see Ps15:5; Pr 29:4); he was also “partial to the poor” which(we see above) is a perversion in God's eyes, as is any form of favoritism, especially in legal matters(see Pr 17:15);

    2. These young men and their families were the victims of false witnessing by the so-called “victim” and conspiratorial plots by governmental agencies which withheld exculpatory information in order to falsely convict innocent people; the Lord, whose Throne is founded on Righteousness and Justice, saw to it that the latter was effected; sadly, with the increasingly liberal bias of our courts, this is not always the case (see Is 30:18; 42:1).

    3. Because of the above, these boys' reputations have been severely tarnished; this is very displeasing to the Lord:
      “A Good Name is better than precious ointment” (Eccles 7:1a; see also Prov 22:1; 25:10; 27:21).
      Benjamin Franklin observed: “Glass, china and reputation are easily cracked and never well mended.”
      It's up to the Lord to mend these families, including salvation where it's necessary.

    So, I could probably go on and find other Biblical angles in the case but, it is sufficient to say that matters like these are very important to our Lord. He hates injustice, loves Biblical JUSTICE, grieves for the innocent who are unfairly accused, and vice versa. As we see in this case, He often mercifully intervenes - Praise His Wonderful, Faithful Name.

    194. Easter and Multiculturalism
    “The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.” (Jn 1:5)

    As we've recently celebrated Jesus' death and resurrection we need to “ponder” these things just as Mary did (see Lk 2:19; 51). As a politically/culturally oriented “watchman”, I look at today's scene through a Biblical lens. What I see is very grievous, especially in light of Jesus' sacrifice on our behalf.

    “Why?” you may ask. Answer: Jesus came to bring heavenly light into our dark world and we have rejected it because we LOVE DARKNESS; we don't want our “deeds” revealed as what they are: dark and “EVIL”. Darkness is moving in to take over the whole world, including the USA (see Lk 23:44; Jn 1:5; 3:19).
    One item in today's Darkness which constitutes making a mockery of Jesus' sacrifice is MULTICULTURALISM! Multiculturalism demands obedience to a set of traditions and laws (e.g., Sharia, world opinion, UN Treaties, environmentalism, homosexuality, etc.).

    Yet, Jesus as Lord DEMANDS obedience ONLY to His Laws (Dt 6:1-3; Mt 5:17-18; Lk 16:17). Anything other than that is rebellious disobedience and idolatry. These bring God's CURSES which we see playing out across the nation and the world. Only obedience to His Laws will bring the Blessings we all inwardly seek. Jesus bought Blessings for us on The Cross.

    Because it completely rejects Jesus as Lord, King, Lawgiver and Judge and substitutes man's opinions as supreme, Multiculturalism is a CURSE (see Judges 21:25; Dt 28:1-2, 15f; 30:19-20; Is 33:22).

    May I bring to your attention one example of “carrying multiculturalism too far”? Please click here for an article which describes how a German judge insisted on following Islamic Sharia “law” and traditions, and allowed a husband to beat his wife and threaten her life. What's next? Allowing jihads to be carried out against “infidels” like you and me?

    The author of this article believes the United Kingdom and other “ignorant Westerners” are sleepwalking “into cultural oblivion.”

    So, in closing, why should we all grieve? Because Jesus' great Gift to us (which we just celebrated) is being trashed by Multicultural rejection of Jesus' loving message of His Kingdom of Laws, Love, Light and Life.

    Fellow Christians, we must REPENT! Wherever we have influence, we must bring these matters to the attention of others who love and honor Jesus. We must work to see Jesus restored to His proper position as LORD of our individual lives, our churches, our communities and our nations (Acts 2:36; I Cor 12:3).

    193. Pastors and Leaders: “Sound the Alarm” (Part II)
    “And how can they hear without someone preaching to them” (Rom 10:14b)

    Anyone who has been a regular follower of our ministry over the years knows that we believe God's Word to be TRUE. So, when He calls our pastors “watchmen” and exhorts them to “WARN the people” about impending danger, He is also warning our pastors/watchmen that they will be held “accountable” if they fail to do so (Ezek 33:16).

    Today we face impending danger from Islam in general and from its more radical elements (“Islamists”/”Islamofascists”) in particular. We have discussed this many times in the past (see our archives - especially: Part I of this series). In this column I want to give you some ideas regarding HOW to “sound the trumpet” (Ezek 33:5):

    1. UNDERSTAND the urgency; regularly read websites such as www.jihadwatch.com, ww w.danielpipes.org, www.washingtontimes.com, www.frontpagemagazine.com, and www.melaniephillips.com;

    2. There are several authors whose books will provide good background with cultural, theological and historical information; I would suggest the following: Bernard Lewis, Daniel Pipes, Bat Ye'or, and Melanie Phillips;

    3. The best and most concise book is by Robert Spencer - “The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades)”. His other books - “The Truth About Muhammad” and “Islam Unveiled” are VERY helpful;

    4. Cease believing you can continue putting your head in the sand with wishful and naïve thinking (like Nevil Chamberlain and today's liberals); You have accepted ordination as our “watchmen” and you are under an obligation to study this subject and WARN your people;

    5. DO NOT recruit someone from the outside who will parrot the “Islam is a religion of peace” propaganda; that is absolutely false, as I am sure you will discover after reading some of the above recommendations and the articles in our archives; especially beware the lies put forward by CAIR (Council For American Islamic Relations); this group is the Muslims' version of the ACLU;

    6. Lastly, TAKE COURAGE! (Dt 3:22). You will find the above sources fascinating and emboldening; it's not as daunting as you may think and, besides, it's your job!

    Pastors and Leaders: May God give you strength, wisdom and courage to take on this task. In reality, in being true to the calling you accepted, you will be so very BLESSED!

    Harry Valentine, CHPA Founder/Publisher

    Prayer:

    “Lord, please guide our spiritual leaders into all truth about this false religion and idolatry(Ex 20:4; Ps 81:9); You promise to guide us and give us wisdom(Prov 3:5-6); Please help us in this case, as in all others (Dt 33:29). In Jesus' Name!”


    192. Senator Lieberman, Islamofascism and YOU

    “And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep”
    (Rom 13:11, emphasis mine)

    For so long, I have been trying to alert you to the perils we are facing from Islamofascism. Are you listening? Do you really believe this?

    Well, Senator Joseph Lieberman (D-CT) does. He believes emphatically. You may remember his own (treasonous - I believe) party tried (unsuccessfully) to run him out of town during last November's elections.

    I am pleased to bring to your attention recent comments by Senator Lieberman on this subject. (See here for the full article.)

    Below are some highlights:

    “The fact is we can't afford anything less than honesty at a time like this-a time when, as citizens of America and supporters of Israel, we confront grave and growing dangers to the nations we care so much about.”
    “The threats I am referring to are directed not just against the security of our societies, but against the values that define who we are and who we hope to be.”

    “They are threats to the universal principles of freedom, of democracy, of the rule of law-threats to the fundamental human rights that we believe are not just cherished by, but endowed to everyone on earth.”

    “I do not need to tell you about the fanatical ideology that links these different groups-the ideology of Islamist extremism, a totalitarian ideology as violent and vicious as the fascism and communism we Americans and our allies fought and defeated in the last century.”

    “Unfortunately, many in our country today do not seem to share that critical understanding of the threats we face.”

    “Increasingly, the debate over our foreign policy is becoming so polarized, so partisan, so bound up in the battles we are having here in Washington, that it seems blind to the real battle outside of America, the challenge of our time from the Islamist extremists who want to destroy us all, who attacked America on September 11, 2001, and intend to do so again.”

    “There is something profoundly wrong when, in the face of attacks by radical Islam, we think we can find safety and stability by pulling back, by talking to and accommodating our enemies, and abandoning our friends and allies.”

    “It's time to step back and remember that there is a real enemy out there-an enemy violently opposed to human rights…and the basic political rights of each one of us.”

    “The esteemed historian of the Middle East, Bernard Lewis, was in Washington this past week. He said that, when he looks at the world today and the threats we face, it reminds him of the 1930s-and that he hears far more voices that sound like Chamberlain than like Churchill.”

    “And so I challenge each of you to find the voice of Churchill inside yourself…”

    Stand up for AmericaStand up for freedom. And have confidence that in the end, our cause will, with God's help, prevail.” (emphases mine.)
    So, very soon you will be receiving Part II of my recent column “Pastors and Leaders: 'Sound the Alarm'.” I will be presenting some practical suggestions regarding HOW to “Sound” alarms about the Islamic threat. Stay tuned!

    #191 Pastors and Leaders: “Sound the Alarm” (Part I)
    “…the sons of Issachar …had understanding of the times” (I Chron 12:32)
    How long has it been that I have been sounding the alarm? (Originally this ministry was entitled “Sound the Trumpet Ministries.”) Answer: 16 years!

    It all started when I picketed against ABORTION at the U.S. Supreme Court in 1989. From that vantage point, I began to understand that, unless the bloodletting stopped, our land would be permanently defiled, we would be vomited out, and we would be doomed, somewhat similar to what happened to Israel in 70 a.d. (see Lev 18:24-28).

    Since then, nothing has happened to change my mind. In fact, my prophetic understanding (see Pr 29:18) has intensified because of 9/11 and because we have become so hostile to the Lord (see Lev 26:27) and are coming under the following curse about which we are warned in Deut 28:49:
    “The LORD will bring a nation against you from afar, from the end of the earth, as swift as the eagle flies, a nation whose language you will not understand.”
    To bolster my perspectives I want to refer you to two recent columns. Douglas MacKinnon looks at Islam's goals and foresees more and more “catastrophic and lasting damage” being visited upon “our republic;” that “we are all but doomed to suffer unimagined pain.” (see article here)

    For this situation MacKinnon blames our “obscenely irresponsible politicians” and US, the voters, for putting them in office.
    Then there is Harry R. Jackson, Jr., who calls for “revival of bedrock Christianity…(which is) our only hope of stopping the advance of violent anti-west radicals.” (see article here)

    How do Christian nations conduct their own jihad? We should draw a line in the sand - defining our unique national cultures while RESISTING the encroachment of unbending, imperialistic Muslims… we must avoid backing down from the intimidation of radical Islamic groups… we must resist!” (emphases mine).
    Pastors, Priests and Leaders, we must RESIST! Please explain Islam and its goals to your flock! Call your church to RESIST, in prayer and action (voting, etc.).

    Shepherds, please recognize and accept your God-ordained responsibilities to be “WATCHMEN”. If you do not warn your people, the eventual blood will be on your heads. Do not look away! (see Lev 20:5; Ezek 3:16-19; 33:1-9.)

    This piece you are reading now is Part I of a two part series. Part II will offer some concrete suggestions about how to RESIST. There are some specific things you can (and should) do to open the eyes of your flocks and call them to action.

    Leaders, please do not be deceived! This is not an exaggeration. Now is the time to act (Mt 16:3)!
    Harry Valentine, CHPA Founder/Publisher

    Let Us PRAY:
    “Lord, such a great disaster looms! Please call Your ordained leaders to accept their responsibilities and call Your people to RESIST” (see Neh 13:11, 17; Dan 9:12).


    #190 New Study Proves: No Need to Kill Embryos for Stem Cells

    “…the wicked and those who love violence His (God’s) Soul hates” (Ps 11:5b – emphasis mine)

    Isn’t it too extreme and mean-spirited to say that God “hates” someone? Aren’t we told that God “loves” everyone?

    We see above that God “hates” people who advocate or do violence. The killing of embryos for any reason constitutes “violence”. God does not “hate” as we do – filled with malice, anger and vindictiveness. Yet, it is safe to say that His “hatred” voices EXTREME DISPLEASURE which includes HIS WRATH.

    Regarding the enclosed article (click here), the Elite Liberals will try to ignore or bury this breakthrough because they “hate” God and “love death” (Prov 8:36), and want the killing of embryos to progress. It is a spiritual matter, and the spirit of murder is driving the Elite Liberals.

    Harry Valentine, CHPA Founder/Publisher
    “Striking down once again the notion that destroying human embryos is necessary for medical cures, researchers have discovered that stem cells found in the amniotic fluid of pregnant women have the potential to grow into brain, muscle and other tissues… This advance in the stem cell debate is one more proof that human beings do not need to be destroyed in order to find medical cures.”

    “CWA President Wendy Wright said, ‘The benefits patients seek from stem cells are available without destroying human embryos. This latest research on amniotic cells is further evidence that we don’t need to kill one life in order to save another’.”
    “Wright concluded, ‘We hope the 110th Congress will begin by voting down a dangerous bill that forces Americans to pay for experiments that destroy the most vulnerable human lives.’”

    #189. ABORTION: Our National SIN
    “On this day, 34 years ago, an elite group of black-robed Supreme Court judges decriminalized the sin and crime of abortion.”

    “With a stroke of a pen, they struck down every law in America that protected preborn children from those who would arbitrarily harm them in the sanctity of their mother's womb.”

    “Roe vs. Wade is not only a bad legal decision that codified evil into law, but stands as a tribute to the basest aspects of our fallen human nature.”

    “With impunity, it allows parents to do the unspeakable to their own offspring.”

    “Roe vs. Wade is a national tragedy that far exceeds the abominable practice of slavery…Can a nation that denies life and freedom to its most vulnerable members be worthy of life and freedom themselves?”

    “Roe vs. Wade is a call to REPENT of this national SIN… May abortion not only become illegal once again, but like slavery before it, may it become unthinkable in the United States of America.” (emphasis mine)

    #188. Elites Seek to Muzzle Conservatives

    “…Jezebel massacred the prophets…”(I Kg 18:4a; see also Acts 5:28)

    The Elites desperately want to CONTROL everything, especially those who oppose their wicked, anti-Christ agenda. They want THEIR FALSE PROPHETS (the major media especially) to control what Americans get to hear. It is very important that Pelosi's TYRANNICAL PLOT (Click here for Article) be CONFOUNDED or we will be under the total control of one-party rule by dedicated atheists, abortion-lovers, homosexuals, one-world socialists, etc.

    Harry Valentine, CHPA Founder/Publisher

    “Pelosi is beginning her 'tyrannical reign' with an aggressive plan to 'muzzle' conservative groups through lobby reform.”

    “'Rep. Pelosi, a pro-abortion, pro-homosexual, anti-military legislator, is working with the leftist Public Citizen group to craft a bill that specifically targets conservative groups -- but leaves labor unions, corporations, and even foreign interests to freely lobby Congress,'” the Rev.

    # 187. IRAQ: A Godly Venture

    “Then David said to Saul, 'Let no man's heart fail because of Goliath; your servant will go and fight with this Philistine.'” 1 Sam 17:32

    For a long time I have been as perturbed as you are by the current state of affairs in Iraq. From the outset I believed President Bush was doing God's Will which, I believe was to start the dismantling of Islam.
    Let me say unequivocably: God will not allow a false god (allah) and its followers to supplant Jesus as ruler of the world (Rev 19:11-16).
    I have read many columns and listened to (too) much talk about the latest decision by President Bush regarding Iraq.
    The enclosed article (click here) succinctly explains what I believe to be Biblically true:

    1. Islam must be defeated (2 Chron 20:6-12);
    2. Withdrawing from Iraq will be a defeat of epic proportions;
    3. Although popular opinion, stoked by radical anti-American leftists, is opposed to him, President Bush understands what is at stake and, like David above, is willing to do all he can to defeat God's opponents;
    4. My prayer is: “May God be with our President and our troops as they work to overcome the Islamofascist thugs. In Jesus' Name! Amen”(Col 2:15)

    Harry Valentine, CHPA Founder/Publisher

    “If President Bush's decision to send 21,500 troops to Iraq tells us anything about him, it is this: He isn't someone who bases his policies on the polls or the results of the last election.”

    “He is acting on his deepest conviction that,… we are engaged in 'the decisive ideological struggle of our time' against Islamic extremists who have declared war against the West and the United States…”

    “It was a gutsy, sober decision that he knows will hardly make him more popular with the American people… Bush has long ago made peace with fact that he is not going to win any popularity contests for the remainder of his presidency as long as the war continues and casualties mount.”

    “Sending more troops to secure the Iraqi capital against a stronger and far more lethal insurgency is clearly in the long-term security interests of our country, and he is willing to leave office two years from now with low-approval polls but secure in the knowledge that he fought the terrorists as hard as he could and kept America safer than it was before he came into office.”

    “He is embarked on this course because all of the other options, such as a phased withdrawal this year, were nonstarters in his mind -- signaling to the terrorists that they had won, that we would back down in the face of their threats and that would make us and the free world more vulnerable to their attacks.”

    “It was perhaps the toughest and loneliest decision of his presidency but one that was made solely to keep our country safe.”

    # 186. Is “Chaos” Coming? Pray!

    The attached article, along with Rev. Pat Robertson's Start of the Year 2007 Prophecy, echo what I have been feeling and helped convince me to “reengage” with The Capitol Hill Prayer Alert (CHPA).

    Pat believes there are evil people intent on carrying out murderous activities here in the USA, creating “chaos”. He feels this may happen in 2007. Chris Mitchell's report from Jerusalem is similar. Pat and Chris ask for PRAYER, and we agree.

    Harry Valentine, CHPA Founder/Publisher

    “[O]n returning to Israel and to 'reality,' I was struck by a few of the issues that will likely have a profound impact on Israel, the region and undoubtedly the world for 2007.”
    “Even more serious for the Olmert government is the accusation that it is not providing the basic responsibility of any government: ensuring the safety of its citizens.”
    “The response - or lack of it - to these attacks has saddled the current Israeli government with a reputation of weakness.”
    “One major factor in the current showdown with Iran and its pursuit of nuclear weapons is their belief in the coming of the Islamic Messiah known as the 12th Imam or 'Mahdi.'… In order for this Shiite 'Mahdi' to return however, the Iranian leadership believes the world must be in a state of chaos. A state of chaos they can help foment.”(emphasis added)
    “There are few commentators and analysts who do not think that 2007 will see another Middle Eastern war, one likely to be far more deadly than the war in the summer of 2006. If so, its impact will reverberate throughout the world.”
    “Yet in the midst of all this turmoil, there is hope. Millions of people caught up in this whirl of events are hungry for the Good News that God loves them. It's this timeless Christmas message…It's also this hope that can spur the Body of Christ round the world to pray for Israel…”

    185. Strayed from the Course

    “…While some place blame on President Bush's policy of 'staying the course' in the war in Iraq, the real reason for the success of the Democratic Party is that many Republicans have 'strayed from the course' of conservative Christian leadership exemplified by President Reagan…

    “Wasteful government spending once thought characteristic of Democratic administrations has increased under a Republican-controlled Congress…

    “A drastic increase in illegal aliens coming across our borders was carefully ignored during the past six years…
    “But perhaps the greatest divergence from Republican philosophy has been the widespread rejection of moral principles by many Republicans elected to office…

    “…the Democratic Party … has adopted a more liberal social philosophy and a warped morality defined by abortion, homosexuality and what the definition of sex 'is.' …

    “The sad truth is that both political parties have 'strayed from the course'… Our peace and happiness, as well as our prosperity, depend not on any political party or any great leader, but rather upon our return as a nation to faith in almighty God…”

    Christian Leaders to Warren: Keep Obama from Pulpit!

    Let not a slanderer be established in the earth… (Ps 140:11a).
    Therefore thus says the Lord: ‘If you return, Then I will bring you back; You shall stand before Me; If you take out the precious from the vile, You shall be as My mouth. Let them return to you, But you must not return to them’ (Jer 15:19). Therefore ‘put away from yourselves the evil person’ (1 Cor 5:13b).

    In light of the three Scriptures above, The Capitol Hill Prayer Alert urges Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in California to repent and not allow his pulpit to be defiled by Sen. Barack Obama (D-IL) this coming Sunday.

    Sen. Obama does not uphold the Godly virtues and doctrines of the Christian faith. Obama has blatantly disobeyed the teachings of Christ Jesus: he has worked to protect all forms of abortions, even barbaric partial-birth abortions; he supports Planned Parenthood’s genocide of inner-city babies; he has opposed parental notification; he has been a long-time supporter of homosexual “rights;” he has backed legislation in support of so-called “hate crimes,” which would be used to prevent pastors from preaching against the sin of homosexuality.

    Pastor Warren has a choice before him – to allow Sen. Obama to speak from the pulpit and thus give credence to his ungodly agenda or to repent and not allow Sen. Obama to use the sacred position of Saddleback’s pulpit to further an anti-Christian worldview.

    In the past few weeks, Pastor Warren opened himself up to great criticism for his trip to Syria. The Syrian government used him – CHPA prays Pastor Warren will not be used now to promote the wicked worldview of Sen. Obama.

    The Capitol Hill Prayer Alert is encouraged by so many Christian leaders “rising up together to urge Saddleback Church pastor Rick Warren to rescind” his invitation. CHPA now urges its readers to READ the following article, to PRAY for Pastor Warren and Saddleback Church, and then to CONTACT the church at (949) 609-8000 or info@saddleback.com .

    “Christian leaders from across a wide spectrum of theologies and missions are rising up together to urge Saddleback Church pastor Rick Warren to rescind an invitation to Sen. Barack Obama to speak from Warren's pulpit… [Obama] is scheduled to speak at a seminar Dec. 1 called, ‘We Must Work Together’ at Warren's 30,000-member California church. The seminar is about coordinating efforts to address the AIDS crisis worldwide… ‘You cannot fight one evil while justifying another,’ a joint statement from dozens of leaders of Christian groups said in condemning Obama's support for abortion and Warren's support for Obama…”

    183. Supreme Court Hearing on Partial-Birth Abortion Wednesday

    "Pro-life organizations are looking forward to Wednesday's Supreme Court hearing on the national partial-birth abortion ban. They hope the court will be convinced that the gruesome abortion procedure is never necessary to protect a mother's health and poses medical and emotional risks of its own?

    "[Americans United for Life  attorney Clarke] Forsythe said ? the records shows 'that no reliable medical evidence exists showing that partial-birth abortion is either safe or effective for any maternal or fetal condition'?

    "'This so-called medial procedure amounts to nothing more than infanticide and now the high court is in position to end this gruesome practice once and for all,' [said American Center for Law and Justice chief counsel Jay Sekulow]?"

    "In 2000, the Supreme Court     voted 5-4 to reject a state ban on partial-birth abortion the Nebraska legislature approved. Now, the high court -with two new justices who are expected to be more receptive - may reverse its previous decision?"

    “...And who knows but that you have come to the kingdom for such a time as this?” (Esther 4:14)

    “In January of 2004, the Boise City Council voted to remove a Ten Commandments Monument… The reason they gave… was that they were afraid lawsuits would be brought against the city, and would cost Boise taxpayers thousands of dollars to protect the monument…

    “Immediately after the Boise City Council voted… a group of Christian and community leaders came together and formed the Keep the Commandments Coalition…The Coalition mobilized thousands of citizens across the Treasure Valley to stand as prophetic voice against the removal of the Ten Commandments and to seek God for spiritual awakening in our region…

    “The struggle over the Ten Commandments was much more than keeping a large piece of stone in a public park. It is about ensuring that future generations will have the right to publicly worship God according the traditions of their own conscience free from government harassment or intimidation…

    “On November 7th, the eyes of the nation will be on Boise as they become the first community in American history to vote on the public display of the Ten Commandments. The outcome of this vote will impact expressions of religious freedom and liberty for years to come. It is a vote we must not lose…”

    181. Abortion war puts South Dakota at 'ground zero'

    “Pro-abortion forces are converging on the bucolic state of South Dakota in unprecedented waves because they know that when voters go to the polls on Nov. 7, their future will be at stake, organizers on both sides of the critical life battle say.

    “'The next few decades in America are going to be shaped by what happens in South Dakota,' David Bereit, a spokesman for the American Life League …'They (pro-abortion forces) know what's at stake, this is their ground zero… Unfortunately, I don't think as many Christians have recognized that yet.' …

    “Even with the $8 million poured into the campaign by Planned Parenthood and its interests - against the $85,000 donations reported by those supporting the abortion ban - the issue still is a statistical tie in recent polls.

    “'We are calling on people to pray, go out and volunteer, and raise money to send to South Dakota,' said Bereit…”

    “For a variety of reasons, Democrats are criticizing the military tribunals bill that President Bush signed into law on Tuesday – but it's the ‘stealth pardon’ for ‘war crimes’ allegedly committed by President Bush and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld that upsets one Democrat the most…

    “Everyone with an ounce of grey matter knows that the Democratic Party is the Sodomy Party in America. There hasn't been a homosexual issue that the Democrats haven't either backed or initiated since the ACLU determined that homosexuality would make a great stick to poke in the eyes of conservatives, traditionalists, and all natural law advocates…

    “And while we are at it why not also openly admit that homosexual practices also strike at the heart of God's creative order of male and female…

    “And so for at least 25 years the Democratic Party has paved the way for the homosexual agenda-an agenda to place homosexuality on a par with heterosexuality and hence gay marriage, gay adoption, gay rights, gay everything! As Don Feder says, 'Gay rights has become as much a part of Democratic orthodoxy as abortion-on-demand.'…

    “The truth is that homosexuals crawl about, around and in the Democratic Party like ants crawl around one's food in the kitchen cupboard. But that doesn't mean that the homosexuals are resting on their laurels. They want to crawl amongst, around and in the Republican Party too…”

    The Capitol Hill Prayer Alert strongly encourages all our Pray-ers to pray for and tune into Family Research Council's Liberty Sunday on October 15.

    Harry Valentine, CHPA Founder/Publisher

    "'Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.'

    “So begins the Bill of Rights with the first amendment to our Constitution--one that guarantees a God-given freedom. For over 200 years the light of the church has illuminated this freedom, but now a radical agenda seeks to extinguish that flame.

    “The expansion of non-discrimination laws to include homosexuality inevitably constricts our right to express and act on our religious beliefs. Recently, there has been a string of incidents involving government intolerance against those who live out their faith in the public square.

    “To respond to this growing threat, I'm pleased to announce that on October 15, 2006, FRC will host a nationwide simulcast from Boston, Massachusetts called 'Liberty Sunday: Defending Our First Freedom.' I invite you to join us as we examine the cultural and legal influences that threaten to erode religious liberties and muzzle free speech.

    177. War Is Against Muslims, Dobson Says

    “On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen…” (Is 62:6).

    Dear Brethren:

    Speaking at a conference sponsored by Family Research Council last weekend, Dr. James Dobson said that we should not avoid the fact that we are in a War with Muslims who want to kill Americans (and, by the way, kill anyone who disagrees with them and stands in their way.).

    Dobson does not believe all Muslims want to kill us. Most are like you and me – wanting to live their lives peacefully, to provide for their families and to carry on with their faith (which, I might add, involves worshipping an idol instead of the one TRUE GOD, JESUS!).

    However, Dobson believes approximately four percent – 50 MILLION – do want to kill us!

    What can you and I do about this? Here are several suggestions:

    1. Notify your pastor, priest and other Christian leaders of this fact; “Sound the Alarm…” (Joel 2:1);
    2. Get your Christian leaders to teach about Islam and its historical fallacies; if they are not equipped, then find someone who is;
    3. Elect magistrates (locally, statewide and nationally) who both understand this and will do something about it (many liberals/socialists are appeasing our enemies);
    4. PRAY! Ask God to INTERVENE and SAVE US (see Jehoshaphat’s prayer in 2 Chr 20; also Ps 119:126). I am convinced the Lord does NOT want Islam to rule America, our children or our grandchildren (if you think their desire to kill us is farfetched, consider Afghanistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, etc., etc., etc.).

    Brethren, I am not exaggerating. Neither is Dr. Dobson. Awake while there is still time.

    From your Watchman in D.C.,

    176. “Indonesian Christians to be Executed Thursday”

    “…International Christian Concern (ICC) http://www.persecution.org has just become informed that … three Christians … are to be executed on Thursday, September 21, 2006. They were the only ones charged in a conflict in which massive numbers of Muslims participated…

    “Jeremy Sewall, ICC Policy Analyst, said, ‘The Indonesian government is sacrificing true justice to provide judicial “balance” by executing these three Christians to appease Muslims who are upset that three Islamic terrorists are also set to be executed for their part in the Bali bombings. This is not justice. This is deception, cover-up, and appeasement.’ …

    “Tibo, Riwu, and Da Silva, all Christian, were the only men charged in the Poso conflict, even though the conflict started in 1998 and went till 2003. This is a glaring injustice and hints of massive cover-up by the Indonesian government…

    “ICC requests that all concerned individuals contact their Indonesian embassy to urge the Indonesian government to intervene in this case to:

    1. Delay the execution.

    2. Reopen a wide ranging investigation into the Poso attacks to so that everyone who is guilty can be charged or amnestied.

    Perhaps the most important question in Michelle Malkin's “pop quiz” comes at the end of her very helpful column (see below). Malkin asks if you know what “Dhimmitude” means. She contends this is what is happening amongst our Elites who are bowing, scraping and cowering before Islamofascists.

    175. “I Will Not Submit”

    “What have you learned since the Sept. 11 attacks five years ago? The mass murder of 2,996 innocent people on American soil forced open my eyes to the Islamic holy war against the West, freedom and modernity. The battle has raged not for years or decades, but for centuries -- well before the Crusades began…

    “Take a post-9/11 pop quiz. It's never too late to start pulling your head from the sand:

    Jihadis -- These are our enemies… They are not 'freedom fighters' or 'militants' or 'rebels' or 'evildoers' of unknown geographic and religious affiliation … Nonie Darwish, an ex-Muslim: 'In the Arab world we were only taught one meaning for Jihad, and that is: A religious holy war against infidels and armed struggle against anyone who is not a Moslem.'

    Infidels/Kafirs -- Anyone who is not a Muslim…

    Sharia -- This is the set of Islamic legal principles and traditions that our enemies seek to impose on us. It's a path that leads inexorably to the subjugation of women, stoning of adulterers,

    Caliphate -- A Muslim world government ruled according to sharia…

    Taqiyya -- Religious deception. Jihadists are taught in al Qaeda training manuals to lie. To fabricate tales…

    Dhimmitude -- The official state of inferiority of non-Muslims under Islam; the bowing and scraping of vanquished infidels to their intellectual and military conquerors… You see it in our government's persistent pandering to grievance-mongering groups yelling 'Islamophobia' and filing lawsuits at every turn…

    “You see it in the refusal to profile at the airport, limit immigration from terrorist-enabling countries and shut down Saudi pilot training programs -- even to this day -- for fear of hurting feelings…

    Is This The “Point of No Return?”

    We find it inconceivable that we are about to be at the “mercy” of people who have no mercy. Once Iran & North Korea have the nuclear means to blow us up, everything changes.
    As Thomas Sowell writes in the enclosed column, “Do we imagine that they can be bought off” by diplomacy, land or other types of surrender?
    No! Iran's god demands that we convert to Islam or be destroyed. North Korea's god (Kim Jong-Il) wants to prove his manhood by destroying us.
    Sowell believes we are almost at the “point of no return.” I concur. Our only hope is PRAYER.

    174. Is This The “Point of No Return?”

    “It is hard to think of a time when a nation - and a whole civilization - has drifted more futilely toward a bigger catastrophe than that looming over the United States and western civilization today…

    “Fanatics filled with hate cannot be either deterred or bought off, whether Hezbollah, Hamas or the government of Iran…

    “The endlessly futile efforts to bring peace to the Middle East with concessions fundamentally misconceive what forces are at work…

    “Hate and humiliation are key forces that cannot be bought off…

    “Why humiliation? Because a once-proud, dynamic culture in the forefront of world civilizations, and still carrying a message of their own superiority to 'infidels' today, is painfully visible to the whole world as a poverty-stricken and backward region, lagging far behind in virtually every field of human endeavor…

    “What kind of people provide a market for videotaped beheadings of innocent hostages? … What kind of people would fly planes into buildings to vent their hate at the cost of their own lives? …

    “Do we understand that the world will never be the same after hate-filled fanatics gain the ability to wipe whole American cities off the face of the earth? Do we still imagine that they can be bought off…?

    “The chief law enforcement officers of several Texas counties along the southern U.S. border warn that Arabic-speaking individuals are learning Spanish and integrating into Mexican culture before paying smugglers to sneak them into the United States. The Texas Sheriffs' Border Coalition believes those individuals are likely terrorists and that drug cartels and some members of the Mexican military are helping them get across the border…
    “…Iranian currency, military badges in Arabic, jackets and other clothing are among the items that have been discovered along the banks of the Rio Grande River… the individuals in question [are] well-funded and able to pay so-called 'coyotes' - human smugglers - large sums of money for help gaining illegal entry into the U.S. …

    “Sheriff Wayne Jernigan… told members of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee in March about one patch that read 'midnight mission' and displayed an airplane flying over a building heading towards a tower. Translators with DHS have said some of the various phrases and slogans on the items could mean 'martyr,' 'way to eternal life,' or 'way to immortality'…

    “Carlos Espinosa, a press spokesman for Sen. Tom Tancredo (R-CO), said his office is aware of a training camp in Brazil that actually teaches people from outside of Latin America how they can assimilate into the Mexican culture…”

    ‘State of Emergency’

    We are sending you excerpts from a column by Tony Blankley in which he summarizes some of the major conclusions put for by Pat Buchanan’s new book, “State of Emergency: The Third World Invasion and Conquest of America.” Blankley calls it a “stunningly logical new book.”

    I have never agreed with some of Buchanan’s positions on a variety of issues (most importantly, Israel). However, I am personally very concerned about the matters which Blankley highlights – the potential for fragmentation of our country and the destruction of our common culture and history.

    I urge you to read the entirety of Blankley’s column, as well as Buchanan’s book. Blankley believes we need “a rational and full debate” about our immigration policy and the effects it will have on the future of the country in which our children and grandchildren will live.

    Harry Valentine, CHPA Founder/Publisher

    172. Pat Buchanan’s ‘State of Emergency’

    “…One of the truly major issue with which America must deal [is] the vast tidal wave of human beings coming from the Third World. There is a fragmentation going on in this country. At what point does cultural, racial diversity become a kind of social anarchy? How do you get national cohesion this way?’ [Eric Sevaried, Christian Science Monitor, 1987]…
    “…[Pat Buchanan] deepens his case against illegal immigration … with statistic after statistic concerning, among many topics, the shockingly disproportionate degree of disease and crime that illegal Mexican and other immigrants are transmitting into the country…
    “He presents compelling evidence that the ‘Reconquista’ of southwestern United States is not merely the silly conceit of a few extremists, but is widely desired by Mexicans (he cites a 2002 Zogby poll showing that by 58 percent to 28 percent, Mexicans believe the American Southwest belongs to Mexico)…
    “But until we as a country come to terms publicly with what kind of a country we think America is and should be, we can never have a rational and full debate about what kind of immigration policy we should try to enforce…”
    “Americans, from what ever nation or ethnicity we originated, have formed a common culture worth preserving, and a common history worth continuing…”

    The Courage of President Bush

    Many thoughtful conservatives and Christians are critical of President Bush's decision to start the War in Iraq - including many of you I suspect. This column by Joshua Muravchik explains what I believe to be true - that Bush understands the goals of the Islamists and is courageous enough to deal with them.
    From my perspective, we need to pray for President Bush and his colleagues rather than criticize them.

    Harry Valentine, CHPA Founder/Publisher

    PS - I will be happy to entertain any differences of opinion.

    171. The Courage of President Bush

    “…Middle Eastern terrorists had been coldly murdering Americans for three decades, but from Nixon through Clinton, no president dared face the issue head-on. The fight promised to be too nasty, and it required a strategy for changing the politics and psychology of the Middle East…

    “…Bush set forth the enormous goal of destroying terrorist groups; cutting off government support for terrorists, if necessary by regime changes; and engineering a new culture in the Middle East by means of democratization…

    “…Bush's pursuit of a fundamental solution was especially courageous because he knew it could not all be achieved within the span of his presidency, thereby courting public impatience. But his courage has held…

    “Bush has taken on the one problem that is by far most important, and he has done it with remarkable perseverance. He led our nation into a war that is both just and necessary and that he knew could not be finished on his watch -- a thankless undertaking…”

    It's Not Just About the Land

    Few people understand why Islamic people are so angry and want revenge. Revenge for what? The answer: causing them to be victims. They blame Israel and (primarily) America. In truth, the real cause is their religion. They worship an idol and the Lord cannot bless them. Please read the entire article by Victor Davis Hanson, not just the excerpts we have below. Hanson, Bernard Lewis, Samuel Huntington and Daniel Pipes present penetrating analyses of the real problems driving the Clash of Civilizations. Unfortunately none of them has a clue about the spiritual basis: worship of a false god and God's wrath.
    Harry Valentine, CHPA Founder/Publisher

    170. It's Not Just About Land

    “…Israel's current two-front war is not just about land. … Hezbollah and Hamas fired rockets from Lebanon and Gaza well after Israel had withdrawn from both places…

    “So, if the most recent war in Lebanon and Gaza is not about land per se, whence arises the elemental desire to destroy Israel? … The answer boils down to Islamists feeling their reputation is at stake. Words like 'honor' and 'pride' are evoked-- in the sense they need to be regained…
    “Fist-shaking crowds, fiery mullahs and terrorists all boast of not giving an inch to infidels, and restoring the now sullied honor of the Islamic people…

    “Why their hurt? …

    “…[R]ather than make the necessary structural changes … too many Middle Easterners have preferred to embrace the reactionary past and the cult of victimization…”

    “Victimization turns out to be the real creed of the Middle East… 'They did it to us' offers an easy explanation of why Islamic states are now weak and offer little hope to millions of their poor…

    “…[A]ppeasement of radical Islamists can do nothing to alleviate these perceived grievances…

    “…[T]here will be no peace … until Iranians and Arabs have true constitutional government, free institutions, open markets and the rule of law. Without these reforms, they will continue to fail, seeking easy refuge in the shreds of mythical ancestral honor -- and this pathetic neurosis of blaming nearby Israel for the loss of it.”

    “The U.S. Senate voted 65-34 late Tuesday [July 26] in favor of a bill that would make it a crime for anyone to transport a minor across state lines for an abortion -- to get around parental notification/consent laws in their home states. But Senate Democrats are trying to kill the Child Custody Protection Act (S. 403) by blocking its progression to a conference committee…

    “Republicans and pro-life groups are outraged that Senate Democrats are, at least for now, blocking a newly approved bipartisan Senate bill aimed at protecting parents' right to be involved in an underage daughter's abortion decision…

    “Both [House and Senate versions] would punish anyone who knowingly skirts a state's parental notification or consent law by taking a pregnant minor to another state to have an abortion. Violators would face fines, up to one year in prison or both, and parents would be able to sue the person who transported their daughter…”

    167. “Appeasing”: 30’s Redux?

    “Certainly there is lots of bad news, most of which confirms what we already knew: The Western world hates Israel; the taboo on anti-Semitism is off; the Western world has been P.C.’ed to the edge of death; there is no stomach for fighting the war against Islamic fascism…

    “The scary thing about our current jam is that 9/11 was supposed to have been the wakeup call, but we are again asleep. For this I blame our leaders – both the administration and the Dems. The administration is constitutionally unable to explain itself, and the Dems have no qualms about losing all present battles so long as they can elect their candidates and bring down this president…

    “The greatest failure of our leaders…is their refusal to see the war plain, which means Iran and Syria (might as well call them ‘Syran’ since they operate in tandem, with Tehran pushing most of the buttons)…

    “It is the Thirties again…the mounting power of what became the Axis was ignored… Apologists for Hitler and Mussolini were legion, and some of our leading intellectuals were saying that American democratic capitalism was a failure, and we would do well to emulate the European totalitarians…

    “I am disturbed at the lack of appropriate response, which in my opinion involves taking the war to ‘Syran,’ mostly by political means…

    “I don’t yet see the necessary vision an will from our leaders.” (Emphases mine)

    Good Brethren,
    There is a plan afoot which, if it takes effect, will REALLY compromise our Borders, Sovereignty, National Identity, Religious Traditions, Prosperity and Safety. It's called the “North American Union.”
    I am not, and never have been, a “conspiracy” believer. But, the enclosed article has me pondering the possibility.
    Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) absolutely is no fool! Yet, even he was duped by nice-sounding ideals which would open the door to a European-style “superstate.”
    Stay tuned! Your families' future depends on you being informed and alert.

    166. Senator Ditches Bill Tied to “Superstate”

    “…Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) has taken steps to ensure the Senate will not act on a bill that would further a plan to create a European Union-style alliance in North America…

    “Cornyn made the decision…[that the North American Investment Fund Act] would constitute an attempt to pass a key piece of American University Professor Robert Pastor's plan to create a 'North American Union'…

    “The spokeman clarified Cornyn 'is adamantly opposed to any “North American Union” being formed like the EU has been formed in Europe'…

    “In his 2001 book 'Toward a North American Community,' [Professor Robert] Pastor argued a North American Development Fund would advance the 'North American integration' needed to produce the union as a regional super-government along the model of the European Union…

    165. American Liberals & “Defeatism”

    “Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival." -- Winston S. Churchill
    “It's a good thing Churchill didn't have 'war heroes' like Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., and Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., in Parliament. Otherwise Great Britain might have been compelled to surrender at Dunkirk…
    “…[T]heir party's leadership believes that a steady drumbeat of dismal defeatism is the best way to return Democrats to power in the 2006 and 2008 elections… the 'surrender now crowd' has unquestionably emboldened our adversaries and disheartened our allies overseas…
    “[A] recently returned soldier I had covered in Iraq for FOX News called me up and said, 'If we pull out now, the terrorists win.' He then asked, 'Where will we fight them next - here?' It's a question the defeatists dare not answer.”

    164. Defeat the Mullahs, or Else!

    “No one should have any lingering doubts about what’s going on in the Middle East. It’s war…

    “…[T]here is a common prime mover, and that is the Iranian mullahcracy, the revolutionary Islamic fascist state that declared war on us 27 years ago and has yet to be held accountable.

    “’The existence of this regime [Israel] will bring nothing but suffering and misery for people in the region,” [Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad] mildly commented, and then said that the anger of the people might soon ‘lead to a vast explosion that will know no boundaries’…

    “Iran has been at war with us all along, because that’s what the world’s leading terror state does. The scariest thing about this moment is that the Iranians have convinced themselves that they are winning, and we are powerless to reverse the tide…

    “The only way we are going to win this war is to bring down those regimes in Tehran and Damascus… Only the United States can accomplish it…

    “You cannot escape the mullahs. You must either defeat them or submit to their terrible vision. There is no other way.”

    “Americans need to take a hard look at what is going on in the Middle East, because it provides the clearest picture possible of the war we are in. On one side are al-Qaeda, Hamas, Hizbollah, Syria and Iran and their allies: Russia, France, Greece, and the UN majority. On the other is the only democracy in the land of Muslim and Arab terror…

    “The origins of this front in the war on terror are crystal clear: the desire of the Muslim terrorists…to destroy Israel and push the Jews into the sea…

    “The war reveals the impossibility of a Palestinian state and the necessity of a civilized occupying force in a region that is populated by a people who have been terminally brainwashed into an ideology of hate…

    “So uncontrollable is the genocidal hatred of Palestinians for Jews (more than a million Palestinians… live peacefully in Israel enjoying more rights than any Arabs or Muslims living in their own countries)…

    “The goal of the United States and Israel and all freedom-loving and civilized people in this war must be the destruction of the Hamas and Hizbollah leadership, their military infrastructure and capabilities…

    “We are confronting a world-wide monstrous evil which needs to be conquered” (7/11/06)
    Do we have the will to RESIST this evil? Robert Spencer, whose thoughts are imbedded in Diana West's column below, questions whether we do.

    Harry Valentine, CHPA Founder/Publisher

    162. Does the U.S. Have “The Will to Resist”?

    “Noting the ensuing security upsurge in American cities, Islamic expert Robert Spencer wrote the following at his must-read Web site, JihadWatch.org:
    “'This is the effect of terror, and this is just what the terrorists want that effect to be. It ties up their enemies' time and money, and it strikes fear in their hearts, in accordance with the Qur'an:
    “'Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly (8:60)…
    “…'[I]t is precisely fear and the loss of the will to resist that the jihadists are ultimately hoping to bring about'…
    “The will to resist is indeed the target of jihadists from India to Israel, from New York City to London…
    “Besides the will to resist, then, we need the knowledge to resist -- the knowledge that there is in the religion of Islam itself the historical, inexorable and driving force behind what the entire non-Muslim world is now experiencing as jihad terror. Whether most Muslims wouldn't hurt a fly is an increasingly irrelevant footnote to the hostile aggression of other Muslims who, in a very short time, have actually transformed civilization as we used to know it…”

    “‘Since 2003, Coalition forces have recovered approximately 500 weapons munitions, which contain degraded mustard or sarin nerve agent. Despite many efforts to locate and destroy Iraq's pre-Gulf war chemical munitions, filled and unfilled pre-Gulf war chemical munitions are assessed to still exist. That means in addition to the 500, there are filled and unfilled munitions still believed to exist within the country’…

Murtha and Kerry long to do…

    “The Left’s hardcore activists … will not refrain from calling President Bush a lying Nazi even if Saddam, in a fit of hunger-induced insanity, admitted every sin and dark machination lurking in his evil heart… But their continuing to do so should underscore their idiocy and mendacity.”

    156. Media Credulity Betrays Their Partiality

    “The story was everywhere and was everywhere the same. On June 9, Israel had fired a rocket onto a Gaza beach killing seven picnicking Palestinian civilians...
    “… the IDF, after initially apologizing and offering assistance to the families of those killed, has now investigated and concluded the explosion was not caused by an Israeli shell…

    “The world press, very much including the mainstream U.S. media, tends to take the word of Palestinian spokesmen about civilian deaths, although experience should have taught them by now to be more guarded…

    “After the Gaza incident, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert spoke by phone with U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan, who demanded an explanation for the Gaza deaths. When Mr. Olmert asked why Mr. Annan had not shown similar concern about the scores of missiles hitting Israel, Mr. Annan was nonplussed. ‘What missiles?’ he asked…

    155. Democrats: Defeaticrat Drumbeat

    “Despite the Republicans' best efforts to self-destruct, I can't see the Democrats taking either the House or Senate this November. As I said a few months back, even a loser has to have someone to lose to, and the Dems refuse to fulfill even that minimum requirement…

    “This summer, [Joseph Lieberman’s] an incumbent senator struggling not to lose in his own primary to a candidate who's the darling of the antiwar netroots left. What has the senator done to offend the base? Nothing -- except broadly support the Iraq campaign and other military goals in the war on terror. He's one of a very few Democrats who give the impression they would like America to win…

    “On the Republican side, some of those antipathetic to Mr. Bush were never in favor of liberating Iraq but figure now we're in it we need to win it. Others were in favor but revile Mr. Bush for pussyfooting around not just with the insurgents but with the Iranians and the Syrians. Others are broadly supportive of Mr. Bush on the war but are furious with him for supporting the No Mexican Left Behind immigration bill…

    “None of these demographics seems particularly fertile soil for the Democratic Party, especially one willing to devour Joe Lieberman in the interests of Defeaticrat purity…

    “It seems likelier that this November the electorate will conclude, yet again, the Democrats are not the answer.”

    154. Coulter: Abortion is Dems' Sacrament

    In Ann Coulter's latest book, she asserts that “liberalism contains all the attributes of what is generally known as 'religion',” including a creation mythology (evolution), priests (public school teachers) and a holy sacrament (abortion).

    “Godless: The Church of Liberalism," is the fifth book written by the best-selling author and commentator. "Godless" hit store shelves on June 6, 2006 (6/6/06, a date she deliberately chose since the numbers correspond to the mark of the beast.)

    Coulter: “[E]volution is the official state religion. Although it is possible to believe in God and evolution, it is not possible to not believe in God without believing in evolution -- otherwise, atheists have no explanation for why we are here. Thus, it's very important for the liberal clergy to force small school children to believe in a discredited mystery religion from the 19th century -- evolution -- in order to prepare them to believe in the nonexistence of God, one of the main goals of the American public education system…

    “With global warming, they finally have an issue to be hysterical about that we won't be able to prove them wrong for a thousand years! …

    “[Abortion is] their version of virgin sacrifice. The Democrats will betray any special interest group -- except the pro-abortion ladies. If you mean why is it the holiest sacrament of the liberal religion, it is because they think if women have access to easy abortions, they can engage in carefree trysts without consequence…

    “Adult stem cells have been used to treat more than 80 diseases. Embryonic stem cells have cured nothing -- they have never, ever been tried in one human clinical trial. The embryonic stem cell debate is a fraud to lure Americans into ceding ground on human experimentation…”

    “The terrorism suspect [Steven Vikash Chand] who allegedly plotted to behead the Prime Minister was a Canadian soldier for four years and likely received weapons training…

    “Chand's lawyer, Gary Batasar, stunned the courtroom by revealing that his client and the 16 others are accused of being involved in a ‘detailed terrorist plot,’ which included plans to storm the Parliament buildings in Ottawa, take political hostages, harm hostages if Canadian troops did not withdraw from Afghanistan, and to attack media outlets including the CBC…

    152. Conservatives Must Hold Firm on Immigration

    “The enactment of an imperfect [immigration] bill, even if it would help to preserve the Republican majority in November, would be a classic case of sacrificing the long-term good for short-term political benefit…

    “The election of a true Democratic majority would have potentially horrifying consequences on domestic and national security issues across the board…

    “But with the immigration, we're not talking about some little throwaway issue, but one whose resolution could determine whether this country will ultimately retain its national identity…

    “This bill, which could easily result in an exponential wave of immigrants entering this country over the next two decades alone, whom our P.C. culture will not even encourage to assimilate, must be vigorously opposed…

    “[W]e simply can't risk bargaining away the very identity of this nation…

    “Those who want to preserve the unique American culture and the English language are not extremists, nativists or racists…

    151. Birthright Sale

    “In Washington, the [U.S.] Senate immigration bill has been selling our birthright for a message of political pottage…

    [T]his bill reduces our existing control of the borders… [T]he Senate bill forbids the federal government from building a fence without first consulting with the Mexican government… [S]tate and local governments are also forbidden by this bill to take any border control actions without first consulting with their Mexican counterparts…

    “This legislation was never about border control. The laws already on the books at this very moment allow us to control the borders, to build any fence we choose, without consulting the government of Mexico… The laws already on the books allow any illegal alien to be arrested and expelled. Those laws are simply not being enforced…

    “Border Patrol agents can knock themselves out capturing people trying to enter the country illegally but nothing happens to most of those people… An Associated Press dispatch reports: ‘The vast majority of people caught smuggling immigrants across the border near San Diego are never prosecuted for the offense, demoralizing the Border Patrol agents’…

    “This is one of the most reckless gambles with the future of this nation ever taken by supposedly responsible members of Congress. The idea that we must consult with Mexico before controlling our own borders is staggering -- and revealing…

    “Mexican president Vicente Fox has even had the nerve to warn that his ‘friendship’ with the United States is at risk if we pass immigration laws he doesn't like. Consulting with his government is truly putting Vicente Fox in charge of the hen house.”

    150. Legislative Travesty

    “The Senate bill pretends to do what it doesn’t truly intend to do—tighten up enforcement—while really doing what its supporters hope no one will notice: conducting a vast social experiment that involves extending the benefits of the welfare state of the world’s richest country to tens of millions of poor, uneducated inhabitants of Latin America, through the expedient of importing them into America…
    “Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation says that the Senate bill will be the largest expansion of the welfare state in 35 years. College-educated immigrants are a net fiscal benefit to the U.S., but high-school graduates are problematic, and high-school dropouts are an outright fiscal disaster. About half of illegal aliens are dropouts, and the out-of-wedlock birth rate for illegals is roughly 45 percent…

    149. What You Don’t Know About the Immigration Bill

    “By rough projections, the Senate bill would double the legal immigration … to about 40 million…
    “The Senate bill's sponsors didn't publicize its full impact on legal immigration… It's safe to say that few Americans know what the bill would do… I suspect that many senators who voted for the legislation don't have a clue as to the potential overall increase in immigration…
    “Our immigration laws involve a bewildering array of categories by which people can get a ‘green card’… The Senate bill dramatically expands many of these categories and creates a large new one: ‘guest workers’… The Senate bill authorizes 200,000 guest workers annually, plus their spouses and minor children…”

    148. Congress Isn't Blame-Free

    “This epidemic of idiocy in Congress is starting to wear down even die-hard Republicans.

    147. Sentiment Against Illegals Is Powerful And Growing

    “High and continuous immigration is occurring under conditions of bilingualism and multiculturalism, rather than assimilation. In the name of diversity, the academic elites have encouraged immigrants to maintain their birth-country cultures and to adopt a stance of separatism and pugnacious victimization.

    “Political scientist Samuel Huntington argues that this amounts to a deconstruction of American identity that has been ‘gradually created over three centuries.’ In his book ‘Mexifornia,’ Victor Davis Hanson says California is not quite Mexico, but not quite the United States either.

    “The political culture of Washington, focused on cheap labor and Latino votes, is nowhere near recognizing what is happening.”

    146. Iran Declares War

    “[Iranian] President Ahmadinejad's letter to President Bush, widely interpreted as a peaceful overture, is in fact a declaration of war. The key sentence in the letter is the closing salutation…‘Peace only unto those who follow the true path.’ …

    “It is a phrase with historical significance in Islam …the prophet Mohammad sent letters to the Byzantine emperor and the Sassanid emperor telling them to convert to the true faith of Islam or be conquered. The letters included the same phrase that President Ahmadinejad used to conclude his letter to Mr. Bush. For Mohammad, the letters were a prelude to a Muslim offensive, a war launched for the purpose of imposing Islamic rule over infidels…

    “Given that Mr. Bush is not about to convert to Islam, what the letter presages is, if anything, an Islamic attack. … [N]o step short of converting to Islam will avert the planned attack so long as the regime in Tehran remains in power. All the ‘carrots’ that the doves in the American foreign policy establishment want to offer … fall short of what Iran's president demands. He demands that America ‘follow the true path’… Short of that, America will not receive peace from the Iranian regime. …

    “…[O]ur president would do us all a service by telling Americans about this Iranian declaration of war. When Al Qaeda issued its February 1998 fatwa, only a few Americans recognized its significance as a declaration of war. That took until September 11, 2001. This time around, let's not miss the warning.”

    “Piece by decaying piece, America is being dismantled…the Boulder, Colo., school district is all but dysfunctional trying to cope with delivering instruction in some 47 different languages. …

    “There's no denying it – America is being invaded on all fronts… Our way of life, our national culture, our very identity is at stake. Does America have the courage of its convictions to rise up and protect our beloved country against this invasion? Does America even have any convictions left?”

    “A student at the University of San Francisco… delivered a full-throated rant about Mexico's right to reclaim American territory: ‘We believe that we have the right to be in this land…Aztlan is California! Aztlan is this country! This country was ours…We didn't cross the borders. The borders crossed us’…

    “Gloria Ramirez Vargas… rallied her constituents with a similar cry: ‘Many Mexicans are nourishing the ground in the U.S., but those lands were once ours. Those same lands… we are re-conquering again for our Mexico.’…

    “In Seattle, photojournalist Byron Dazey … snapped hundreds of pictures… ‘Open the Borders’ screamed a giant banner. ‘No more blood! No more borders!’ echoed another placard. ‘Stop the War! Stop the Borders!’ preaches a sign carried by a ‘Freedom Socialist Worker’…

    “Our borders are sieves. We are at war with Islamofascism… while our government prepares to grant a massive amnesty at Mexican President Vicente Fox's behest…

    “The homegrown multiculti-mau-mau-ers know exactly what they believe and they know exactly what they are doing. They aim to mainstream the ‘Stolen Land’ mantra and pervert history. They aim to obliterate America's borders by sheer demographic and political force… “

    “One of the ways of trying to justify illegal immigration from an economic standpoint is to point out that the work done by these immigrants is adding to the total output of the United States… If that is a sufficient justification, why not open our borders to everybody from countries around the world? If not, why not? …

    “The most obvious objection is that the world's population living in the United States would not only add to output but add to the costs imposed on American citizens…

    “… [T]he financial drain of serving people who cannot or do not pay has shut down some … hospitals, making them unavailable to American citizens as well as illegal aliens…

    “… [P]eople who have been railing at Wal-Mart for not paying their workers ‘enough,’ claiming that the taxpayers are subsidizing Wal-Mart employees' health care and other benefits, never seem to apply the same reasoning to illegal immigrants…

    “While American citizens are legally entitled to welfare state benefits, Mexicans get those benefits only if they cross the border into the United States. In short, immigrants add to such costs while Wal-Mart's American employees do not…

    “Whatever the decision as to how many and what kind of immigrants should be let into the United States, why should that decision be made by people in Mexico, instead of being made here by Americans?”

    “In January 2005, a high school in Ijsselstein, Holland, ordered two students to remove patches of the Dutch flag from their backpacks because the administration feared they would provoke Moroccan students…

    “European elites preferred to curtail free speech rather than risk offending unassimilated minority groups…

    “To encourage American pride… is to encourage assimilation -- and assimilation has become a dirty word in American education… the elites’ lack of self-esteem about being American leads to policies that prevent students from appreciating what they have in common with other Americans… As Victor Davis Hanson writes in his book, Mexifornia: A State of Becoming, ‘the goal of assimilation that was once the standard, if unspoken orthodoxy in our schools and government is now ridiculed as racist and untrue.’…

    “Europe’s unquestioned faith in multiculturalism has resulted in the alienation of Muslim immigrants, many of whom feel no ties whatsoever to their adoptive countries. Eurabia’, once just a feared dystopia wherein Europe would become a colony of the Muslim world, increasingly seems like a reality. Could it be that a similar transformation is taking place in America?…

    “America was once unparalleled in its ability to assimilate immigrants. But today the ideal of a melting pot society is under assault by an American educational establishment that believes in the dogma of multiculturalism above all. As a result, it often seems as if Mexifornia, like Eurabia, is already here.”

    “What is happening on the southern border is unprecedented… Mexico, a country which officially encourages its emigrants to vote in Mexican elections, urging them to think of themselves as Mexican first and perhaps only… This is invasion masquerading as immigration…

    “It may already be too late to avoid a future annexation of the Southwest by Mexico or the evolution of a Mexican-dominated satellite state… 

    “Mr. President, this is a time for candor. Your immigration policy is viewed as captive to the cheap labor… The failure to recognize this growing and deep disaffection among Republicans, conservatives, independents and, indeed, many Reagan Democrats, is, in the short run, going to lead to a monumental defeat for your party at the polls in November…

    “… I watched the Senate Judiciary Committee's one-day public session on immigration reform… it was remarkable for the near absence of any senator speaking on behalf of the American people or their own constituents…

    “The American people have been made the victims of monumental social engineering perpetuated upon them without their consent and against their will by an arrogant governing elite …

    “Dear Mr. President, you must disenthrall yourself from the failed policies of the present. I implore you to rethink this issue and to change course. Millions of Americans, a great majority of your fellow citizens will be with you. Start speaking and doing the sensible, courageous and right thing. You will see your poll numbers turn dramatically around. You will save your country.”

    181. Abortion war puts South Dakota at 'ground zero'

    “Pro-abortion forces are converging on the bucolic state of South Dakota in unprecedented waves because they know that when voters go to the polls on Nov. 7, their future will be at stake, organizers on both sides of the critical life battle say.

    “'The next few decades in America are going to be shaped by what happens in South Dakota,' David Bereit, a spokesman for the American Life League …'They (pro-abortion forces) know what's at stake, this is their ground zero… Unfortunately, I don't think as many Christians have recognized that yet.' …

    “Even with the $8 million poured into the campaign by Planned Parenthood and its interests - against the $85,000 donations reported by those supporting the abortion ban - the issue still is a statistical tie in recent polls.

    “'We are calling on people to pray, go out and volunteer, and raise money to send to South Dakota,' said Bereit…”

    180. Impeachment Drumbeat Grows Louder

    “For a variety of reasons, Democrats are criticizing the military tribunals bill that President Bush signed into law on Tuesday – but it's the ‘stealth pardon’ for ‘war crimes’ allegedly committed by President Bush and Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld that upsets one Democrat the most…

    “Democratic control of Congress ‘would make impeachment a serious reality,’ [former NY-D U.S. Rep. Elizabeth] Holtzman blogged Tuesday on the Huffington Post…

    “As the midterm election draws closer and the drumbeat for impeachment grows louder, it appears that in the case of George W. Bush, some Democrats would take great pleasure in impeaching this particular president.

    “The Republican Party has warned that for Democrats, impeaching Bush is what the midterm election is really all about.”

    179. Will the Real Sodomy Party Please Stand Up?

    “Everyone with an ounce of grey matter knows that the Democratic Party is the Sodomy Party in America. There hasn't been a homosexual issue that the Democrats haven't either backed or initiated since the ACLU determined that homosexuality would make a great stick to poke in the eyes of conservatives, traditionalists, and all natural law advocates…

    “And while we are at it why not also openly admit that homosexual practices also strike at the heart of God's creative order of male and female…

    “And so for at least 25 years the Democratic Party has paved the way for the homosexual agenda-an agenda to place homosexuality on a par with heterosexuality and hence gay marriage, gay adoption, gay rights, gay everything! As Don Feder says, 'Gay rights has become as much a part of Democratic orthodoxy as abortion-on-demand.'…

    “The truth is that homosexuals crawl about, around and in the Democratic Party like ants crawl around one's food in the kitchen cupboard. But that doesn't mean that the homosexuals are resting on their laurels. They want to crawl amongst, around and in the Republican Party too…”

    178. LIBERTY SUNDAY: Defending Our First Freedom

    The Capitol Hill Prayer Alert strongly encourages all our Pray-ers to pray for and tune into Family Research Council's Liberty Sunday on October 15. We especially pray that God will cause many Pastors and Church Leaders to take part in this nationwide simulcast. Now is the time for our Pastors and Church Leaders to be as the “Sons of Issachar, men who understood the times” (1 Chr 12:32).

    Harry Valentine, CHPA Founder/Publisher

    "'Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.'

    “So begins the Bill of Rights with the first amendment to our Constitution--one that guarantees a God-given freedom. For over 200 years the light of the church has illuminated this freedom, but now a radical agenda seeks to extinguish that flame.

    “The expansion of non-discrimination laws to include homosexuality inevitably constricts our right to express and act on our religious beliefs. Recently, there has been a string of incidents involving government intolerance against those who live out their faith in the public square.

    “To respond to this growing threat, I'm pleased to announce that on October 15, 2006, FRC will host a nationwide simulcast from Boston, Massachusetts called 'Liberty Sunday: Defending Our First Freedom.' I invite you to join us as we examine the cultural and legal influences that threaten to erode religious liberties and muzzle free speech.

    177. War Is Against Muslims, Dobson Says

    “On your walls, O Jerusalem, I have appointed watchmen…” (Is 62:6).

    Dear Brethren:

    Speaking at a conference sponsored by Family Research Council last weekend, Dr. James Dobson said that we should not avoid the fact that we are in a War with Muslims who want to kill Americans (and, by the way, kill anyone who disagrees with them and stands in their way.).

    Dobson does not believe all Muslims want to kill us. Most are like you and me – wanting to live their lives peacefully, to provide for their families and to carry on with their faith (which, I might add, involves worshipping an idol instead of the one TRUE GOD, JESUS!).

    However, Dobson believes approximately four percent – 50 MILLION – do want to kill us!

    What can you and I do about this? Here are several suggestions:

    1. Notify your pastor, priest and other Christian leaders of this fact; “Sound the Alarm…” (Joel 2:1);
    2. Get your Christian leaders to teach about Islam and its historical fallacies; if they are not equipped, then find someone who is;
    3. Elect magistrates (locally, statewide and nationally) who both understand this and will do something about it (many liberals/socialists are appeasing our enemies);
    4. PRAY! Ask God to INTERVENE and SAVE US (see Jehoshaphat’s prayer in 2 Chr 20; also Ps 119:126). I am convinced the Lord does NOT want Islam to rule America, our children or our grandchildren (if you think their desire to kill us is farfetched, consider Afghanistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, etc., etc., etc.).

    Brethren, I am not exaggerating. Neither is Dr. Dobson. Awake while there is still time.

    From your Watchman in D.C.,

    “Indonesian Christians to be Executed Thursday”

    The following news release is shocking and needs our attention. Please take the time to PRAY for these three brothers in Christ, CONTACT the Indonesian Embassy and PASS the information on to other Praying Christians. DO NOT DELAY!

    Harry Valentine, CHPA Founder/Publisher

    176. “Indonesian Christians to be Executed Thursday”

    “…International Christian Concern (ICC) http://www.persecution.org has just become informed that … three Christians … are to be executed on Thursday, September 21, 2006. They were the only ones charged in a conflict in which massive numbers of Muslims participated…

    “Jeremy Sewall, ICC Policy Analyst, said, ‘The Indonesian government is sacrificing true justice to provide judicial “balance” by executing these three Christians to appease Muslims who are upset that three Islamic terrorists are also set to be executed for their part in the Bali bombings. This is not justice. This is deception, cover-up, and appeasement.’ …

    “Tibo, Riwu, and Da Silva, all Christian, were the only men charged in the Poso conflict, even though the conflict started in 1998 and went till 2003. This is a glaring injustice and hints of massive cover-up by the Indonesian government…

    “ICC requests that all concerned individuals contact their Indonesian embassy to urge the Indonesian government to intervene in this case to:

    1. Delay the execution.

    2. Reopen a wide ranging investigation into the Poso attacks to so that everyone who is guilty can be charged or amnestied.

    Perhaps the most important question in Michelle Malkin's “pop quiz” comes at the end of her very helpful column (see below). Malkin asks if you know what “Dhimmitude” means. She contends this is what is happening amongst our Elites who are bowing, scraping and cowering before Islamofascists.
    Please do not just read our brief excerpts. Her entire column is a “must read” if you (or your friends) want to understand the War for American Survival, much of which involves Americans who hate the Judeo-Christian basis for our culture and want to replace it with rabid secular humanism.

    175. “I Will Not Submit”

    “What have you learned since the Sept. 11 attacks five years ago? The mass murder of 2,996 innocent people on American soil forced open my eyes to the Islamic holy war against the West, freedom and modernity. The battle has raged not for years or decades, but for centuries -- well before the Crusades began…

    “Take a post-9/11 pop quiz. It's never too late to start pulling your head from the sand:

    Jihadis -- These are our enemies… They are not 'freedom fighters' or 'militants' or 'rebels' or 'evildoers' of unknown geographic and religious affiliation … Nonie Darwish, an ex-Muslim: 'In the Arab world we were only taught one meaning for Jihad, and that is: A religious holy war against infidels and armed struggle against anyone who is not a Moslem.'

    Infidels/Kafirs -- Anyone who is not a Muslim…

    Sharia -- This is the set of Islamic legal principles and traditions that our enemies seek to impose on us. It's a path that leads inexorably to the subjugation of women, stoning of adulterers,

    Caliphate -- A Muslim world government ruled according to sharia…

    Taqiyya -- Religious deception. Jihadists are taught in al Qaeda training manuals to lie. To fabricate tales…

    Dhimmitude -- The official state of inferiority of non-Muslims under Islam; the bowing and scraping of vanquished infidels to their intellectual and military conquerors… You see it in our government's persistent pandering to grievance-mongering groups yelling 'Islamophobia' and filing lawsuits at every turn…

    “You see it in the refusal to profile at the airport, limit immigration from terrorist-enabling countries and shut down Saudi pilot training programs -- even to this day -- for fear of hurting feelings…

    “Honor the victims of 9/11 by making a pledge: 'I will not submit.'”

    Is This The “Point of No Return?”

    We find it inconceivable that we are about to be at the “mercy” of people who have no mercy. Once Iran & North Korea have the nuclear means to blow us up, everything changes.
    As Thomas Sowell writes in the enclosed column, “Do we imagine that they can be bought off” by diplomacy, land or other types of surrender?
    No! Iran's god demands that we convert to Islam or be destroyed. North Korea's god (Kim Jong-Il) wants to prove his manhood by destroying us.
    Sowell believes we are almost at the “point of no return.” I concur. Our only hope is PRAYER.

    Harry Valentine, CHPA Founder/Publisher

    174. Is This The “Point of No Return?”

    “It is hard to think of a time when a nation - and a whole civilization - has drifted more futilely toward a bigger catastrophe than that looming over the United States and western civilization today…

    “Fanatics filled with hate cannot be either deterred or bought off, whether Hezbollah, Hamas or the government of Iran…

    “The endlessly futile efforts to bring peace to the Middle East with concessions fundamentally misconceive what forces are at work…

    “Hate and humiliation are key forces that cannot be bought off…

    “Why humiliation? Because a once-proud, dynamic culture in the forefront of world civilizations, and still carrying a message of their own superiority to 'infidels' today, is painfully visible to the whole world as a poverty-stricken and backward region, lagging far behind in virtually every field of human endeavor…

    “What kind of people provide a market for videotaped beheadings of innocent hostages? … What kind of people would fly planes into buildings to vent their hate at the cost of their own lives? …

    “Do we understand that the world will never be the same after hate-filled fanatics gain the ability to wipe whole American cities off the face of the earth? Do we still imagine that they can be bought off…?

    173. Are Terrorists Entering U.S. from Mexico?

    “The chief law enforcement officers of several Texas counties along the southern U.S. border warn that Arabic-speaking individuals are learning Spanish and integrating into Mexican culture before paying smugglers to sneak them into the United States. The Texas Sheriffs' Border Coalition believes those individuals are likely terrorists and that drug cartels and some members of the Mexican military are helping them get across the border…
    “…Iranian currency, military badges in Arabic, jackets and other clothing are among the items that have been discovered along the banks of the Rio Grande River… the individuals in question [are] well-funded and able to pay so-called 'coyotes' - human smugglers - large sums of money for help gaining illegal entry into the U.S. …

    “Sheriff Wayne Jernigan… told members of the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee in March about one patch that read 'midnight mission' and displayed an airplane flying over a building heading towards a tower. Translators with DHS have said some of the various phrases and slogans on the items could mean 'martyr,' 'way to eternal life,' or 'way to immortality'…

    ‘State of Emergency’

    We are sending you excerpts from a column by Tony Blankley in which he summarizes some of the major conclusions put for by Pat Buchanan’s new book, “State of Emergency: The Third World Invasion and Conquest of America.” Blankley calls it a “stunningly logical new book.”

    I have never agreed with some of Buchanan’s positions on a variety of issues (most importantly, Israel). However, I am personally very concerned about the matters which Blankley highlights – the potential for fragmentation of our country and the destruction of our common culture and history.

    I urge you to read the entirety of Blankley’s column, as well as Buchanan’s book. Blankley believes we need “a rational and full debate” about our immigration policy and the effects it will have on the future of the country in which our children and grandchildren will live.

    Harry Valentine, CHPA Founder/Publisher

    172. Pat Buchanan’s ‘State of Emergency’

    “…One of the truly major issue with which America must deal [is] the vast tidal wave of human beings coming from the Third World. There is a fragmentation going on in this country. At what point does cultural, racial diversity become a kind of social anarchy? How do you get national cohesion this way?’ [Eric Sevaried, Christian Science Monitor, 1987]…
    “…[Pat Buchanan] deepens his case against illegal immigration … with statistic after statistic concerning, among many topics, the shockingly disproportionate degree of disease and crime that illegal Mexican and other immigrants are transmitting into the country…
    “He presents compelling evidence that the ‘Reconquista’ of southwestern United States is not merely the silly conceit of a few extremists, but is widely desired by Mexicans (he cites a 2002 Zogby poll showing that by 58 percent to 28 percent, Mexicans believe the American Southwest belongs to Mexico)…
    “But until we as a country come to terms publicly with what kind of a country we think America is and should be, we can never have a rational and full debate about what kind of immigration policy we should try to enforce…”
    “Americans, from what ever nation or ethnicity we originated, have formed a common culture worth preserving, and a common history worth continuing…”

    The Courage of President Bush

    Many thoughtful conservatives and Christians are critical of President Bush's decision to start the War in Iraq - including many of you I suspect. This column by Joshua Muravchik explains what I believe to be true - that Bush understands the goals of the Islamists and is courageous enough to deal with them.
    From my perspective, we need to pray for President Bush and his colleagues rather than criticize them.

    Harry Valentine, CHPA Founder/Publisher

    PS - I will be happy to entertain any differences of opinion.

    171. The Courage of President Bush

    “…Middle Eastern terrorists had been coldly murdering Americans for three decades, but from Nixon through Clinton, no president dared face the issue head-on. The fight promised to be too nasty, and it required a strategy for changing the politics and psychology of the Middle East…

    “…Bush set forth the enormous goal of destroying terrorist groups; cutting off government support for terrorists, if necessary by regime changes; and engineering a new culture in the Middle East by means of democratization…

    “…Bush's pursuit of a fundamental solution was especially courageous because he knew it could not all be achieved within the span of his presidency, thereby courting public impatience. But his courage has held…

    “Bush has taken on the one problem that is by far most important, and he has done it with remarkable perseverance. He led our nation into a war that is both just and necessary and that he knew could not be finished on his watch -- a thankless undertaking…”

    It's Not Just About the Land

    Few people understand why Islamic people are so angry and want revenge. Revenge for what? The answer: causing them to be victims. They blame Israel and (primarily) America. In truth, the real cause is their religion. They worship an idol and the Lord cannot bless them. Please read the entire article by Victor Davis Hanson, not just the excerpts we have below. Hanson, Bernard Lewis, Samuel Huntington and Daniel Pipes present penetrating analyses of the real problems driving the Clash of Civilizations. Unfortunately none of them has a clue about the spiritual basis: worship of a false god and God's wrath.
    Harry Valentine, CHPA Founder/Publisher

    170. It's Not Just About Land

    “…Israel's current two-front war is not just about land. … Hezbollah and Hamas fired rockets from Lebanon and Gaza well after Israel had withdrawn from both places…

    “So, if the most recent war in Lebanon and Gaza is not about land per se, whence arises the elemental desire to destroy Israel? … The answer boils down to Islamists feeling their reputation is at stake. Words like 'honor' and 'pride' are evoked-- in the sense they need to be regained…
    “Fist-shaking crowds, fiery mullahs and terrorists all boast of not giving an inch to infidels, and restoring the now sullied honor of the Islamic people…

    “Why their hurt? …

    “…[R]ather than make the necessary structural changes … too many Middle Easterners have preferred to embrace the reactionary past and the cult of victimization…”

    “Victimization turns out to be the real creed of the Middle East… 'They did it to us' offers an easy explanation of why Islamic states are now weak and offer little hope to millions of their poor…

    “…[A]ppeasement of radical Islamists can do nothing to alleviate these perceived grievances…

    “…[T]here will be no peace … until Iranians and Arabs have true constitutional government, free institutions, open markets and the rule of law. Without these reforms, they will continue to fail, seeking easy refuge in the shreds of mythical ancestral honor -- and this pathetic neurosis of blaming nearby Israel for the loss of it.”

    “Both [House and Senate versions] would punish anyone who knowingly skirts a state's parental notification or consent law by taking a pregnant minor to another state to have an abortion.

    167. “Appeasing”: 30’s Redux?

    “Certainly there is lots of bad news, most of which confirms what we already knew: The Western world hates Israel; the taboo on anti-Semitism is off; the Western world has been P.C.’ed to the edge of death; there is no stomach for fighting the war against Islamic fascism…

    “The scary thing about our current jam is that 9/11 was supposed to have been the wakeup call, but we are again asleep. For this I blame our leaders – both the administration and the Dems. The administration is constitutionally unable to explain itself, and the Dems have no qualms about losing all present battles so long as they can elect their candidates and bring down this president…

    “The greatest failure of our leaders…is their refusal to see the war plain, which means Iran and Syria (might as well call them ‘Syran’ since they operate in tandem, with Tehran pushing most of the buttons)…

    “It is the Thirties again…the mounting power of what became the Axis was ignored… Apologists for Hitler and Mussolini were legion, and some of our leading intellectuals were saying that American democratic capitalism was a failure, and we would do well to emulate the European totalitarians…

    “I am disturbed at the lack of appropriate response, which in my opinion involves taking the war to ‘Syran,’ mostly by political means…

    Good Brethren,
    There is a plan afoot which, if it takes effect, will REALLY compromise our Borders, Sovereignty, National Identity, Religious Traditions, Prosperity and Safety. It's called the “North American Union.”
    I am not, and never have been, a “conspiracy” believer. But, the enclosed article has me pondering the possibility.
    Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) absolutely is no fool! Yet, even he was duped by nice-sounding ideals which would open the door to a European-style “superstate.”
    Stay tuned! Your families' future depends on you being informed and alert.

    “[A]n evil man, out of the evil treasure of his heart, speaks that which is evil” (Lk 6:45b).
    We are fighting several implacable, demonically inspired enemies at the same time: Islamofascists abroad and Radical Heathens at home (the latter consisting of ardent “liberals” who, while enjoying the fruits of living in the USA, seem intent on destroying it).
    As I have noted before, these pagan “liberals” YEARN for our DEFEAT militarily, economically and culturally. This article by Oliver North, focusing primarily on military matters, speaks about the heart-attitude of these Defeatists.

    165. American Liberals & “Defeatism”

    “Victory at all costs, victory in spite of all terror, victory however long and hard the road may be; for without victory, there is no survival." -- Winston S. Churchill
    “It's a good thing Churchill didn't have 'war heroes' like Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., and Rep. John Murtha, D-Pa., in Parliament. Otherwise Great Britain might have been compelled to surrender at Dunkirk…
    “…[T]heir party's leadership believes that a steady drumbeat of dismal defeatism is the best way to return Democrats to power in the 2006 and 2008 elections… the 'surrender now crowd' has unquestionably emboldened our adversaries and disheartened our allies overseas…
    “[A] recently returned soldier I had covered in Iraq for FOX News called me up and said, 'If we pull out now, the terrorists win.' He then asked, 'Where will we fight them next - here?' It's a question the defeatists dare not answer.”

    164. Defeat the Mullahs, or Else!

    “No one should have any lingering doubts about what’s going on in the Middle East. It’s war…

    “…[T]here is a common prime mover, and that is the Iranian mullahcracy, the revolutionary Islamic fascist state that declared war on us 27 years ago and has yet to be held accountable.

    “’The existence of this regime [Israel] will bring nothing but suffering and misery for people in the region,” [Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad] mildly commented, and then said that the anger of the people might soon ‘lead to a vast explosion that will know no boundaries’…

    “Iran has been at war with us all along, because that’s what the world’s leading terror state does. The scariest thing about this moment is that the Iranians have convinced themselves that they are winning, and we are powerless to reverse the tide…

    “The only way we are going to win this war is to bring down those regimes in Tehran and Damascus… Only the United States can accomplish it…

    “You cannot escape the mullahs. You must either defeat them or submit to their terrible vision. There is no other way.”

    163. The War We Must Support (and WIN!)

    “Americans need to take a hard look at what is going on in the Middle East, because it provides the clearest picture possible of the war we are in. On one side are al-Qaeda, Hamas, Hizbollah, Syria and Iran and their allies: Russia, France, Greece, and the UN majority. On the other is the only democracy in the land of Muslim and Arab terror…

    “The origins of this front in the war on terror are crystal clear: the desire of the Muslim terrorists…to destroy Israel and push the Jews into the sea…

    “The war reveals the impossibility of a Palestinian state and the necessity of a civilized occupying force in a region that is populated by a people who have been terminally brainwashed into an ideology of hate…

    “So uncontrollable is the genocidal hatred of Palestinians for Jews (more than a million Palestinians… live peacefully in Israel enjoying more rights than any Arabs or Muslims living in their own countries)…

    “The goal of the United States and Israel and all freedom-loving and civilized people in this war must be the destruction of the Hamas and Hizbollah leadership, their military infrastructure and capabilities…

    “This is a war all Americans must support.”

    The Capitol Hill Prayer Alert will be sending three very insightful articles by respected commentators over the next few days. They echo thoughts of Michael Medved:
    “We are confronting a world-wide monstrous evil which needs to be conquered” (7/11/06)
    Do we have the will to RESIST this evil? Robert Spencer, whose thoughts are imbedded in Diana West's column below, questions whether we do.
    In order to be well informed, please read each of these articles as they arrive in you e-mail.

    Harry Valentine, CHPA Founder/Publisher

    162. Does the U.S. Have “The Will to Resist”?

    “Noting the ensuing security upsurge in American cities, Islamic expert Robert Spencer wrote the following at his must-read Web site, JihadWatch.org:
    “'This is the effect of terror, and this is just what the terrorists want that effect to be. It ties up their enemies' time and money, and it strikes fear in their hearts, in accordance with the Qur'an:
    “'Against them make ready your strength to the utmost of your power, including steeds of war, to strike terror into (the hearts of) the enemies, of Allah and your enemies, and others besides, whom ye may not know, but whom Allah doth know. Whatever ye shall spend in the cause of Allah, shall be repaid unto you, and ye shall not be treated unjustly (8:60)…
    “…'[I]t is precisely fear and the loss of the will to resist that the jihadists are ultimately hoping to bring about'…
    “The will to resist is indeed the target of jihadists from India to Israel, from New York City to London…
    “Besides the will to resist, then, we need the knowledge to resist -- the knowledge that there is in the religion of Islam itself the historical, inexorable and driving force behind what the entire non-Muslim world is now experiencing as jihad terror. Whether most Muslims wouldn't hurt a fly is an increasingly irrelevant footnote to the hostile aggression of other Muslims who, in a very short time, have actually transformed civilization as we used to know it…”

    161. U.S. Fighting World War IV

    “Former CIA Director James Woolsey said [April 2, 2003] the United States is engaged in World War IV, and that it could continue for years…

    “Woolsey described the Cold War as the third world war and said ‘This fourth world war, I think, will last considerably longer than either World Wars I or II did for us. Hopefully not the full four-plus decades of the Cold War’ …

    “He said the new war is actually against three enemies: the religious rulers of Iran, the ‘fascists’ of Iraq and Syria, and Islamic extremists like al Qaeda…”

    160. Liberals Advocate Global U.S. Defeat
    “…Democratic Party leaders… understand that setting a timetable for withdrawal would be irresponsible but are pulled in a defeatist direction by the very vocal left-wing of their political base…

    “The left wants a retreat from Iraq to be the prelude to a larger collapse of American preeminence world wide…

    “Those of us who do not want it to be over for America need to be aware of the larger leftist agenda of U.S. defeat worldwide. Their willingness to embrace foreign powers to help bring down America raises fundamental questions about the proper limits of partisan debate…

Tom Tancredo (R-CO)…
    “Tancredo reports he has had confidential briefings with top officials in big-city law enforcement who say there are entire cities under the virtual control of Mexican criminal street gangs and their associated businesses…

    “[Tancredo believes] without strong, moral leadership, without a renewed sense of purpose, without a rededication to family and community, without shunning the race hustlers and pop-culture sham artists, without protecting borders, language and culture, the nation that once was ‘the land of the free and home of the brave’ and the ‘one last best hope of mankind’ will repeat the catastrophic mistakes of the past…”

    The Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer, President of Human Life International responds to Warren Buffett’s announcement to donate billions of dollars to the pro-abortion Gates Foundation.

    “Warren Buffett’s philanthropy aims at killing pre-born children not curing childhood disease, eliminating the poor not poverty, and destroying the developing world not aiding development.

    “The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation have also given millions of dollars to organizations pushing abortion around the world. The merger of Gates and Buffett may spell doom for the families of the developing world.

    “Warren Buffett will be known as the Dr. Mengele of philanthropy unless he repents and ceases using tax deductible donations to promote a culture of death and desolation…,” concluded the Rev. Thomas J. Euteneuer.

    157. The Anti-War Left are Liars

    “The antiwar Left’s claim that “Bush lied” about Saddam Hussein possessing Weapons of Mass Destruction has itself been proven a lie...

    “…Sen. Rick Santorum, R-PA, and Rep. Peter Hoekstra, R-MI, released the declassified overview of a report produced by the National Ground Intelligence Center…Its stunning revelation: there were WMDs, after all…

    “‘Since 2003, Coalition forces have recovered approximately 500 weapons munitions, which contain degraded mustard or sarin nerve agent. Despite many efforts to locate and destroy Iraq's pre-Gulf war chemical munitions, filled and unfilled pre-Gulf war chemical munitions are assessed to still exist. That means in addition to the 500, there are filled and unfilled munitions still believed to exist within the country’…
    • “President Bush ‘engaged in a systematic effort to manipulate the facts in service to a totalistic ideology.’ – Vice President Al Gore…
    • ‘As in Vietnam, truth was the first casualty of this war.’ – Ted Kennedy…
    • ‘What we see today is very much like what was going in Watergate. It turns out there is a lot of good evidence that President Bush did not tell the truth when he was asking Congress for the power to go to war.’ – Howard Dean…
    • ‘He misled every one of us.’ – John Kerry…
    • ‘We cannot lead if our leaders mislead.’ – Former President Jimmy Carter at the 2004 Democratic National Convention…

    “Yesterday’s announcement by Santorum and Hoekstra is but the most specific documentation of ‘An Inconvenient Truth’: Saddam did not destroy his weapons stockpiles, the UN inspectors were indeed inept, and the weapons may yet fall into the hands of terrorists if American troops are prematurely withdrawn from Iraq, as Messrs. Murtha and Kerry long to do…

    “The Left’s hardcore activists … will not refrain from calling President Bush a lying Nazi even if Saddam, in a fit of hunger-induced insanity, admitted every sin and dark machination lurking in his evil heart… But their continuing to do so should underscore their idiocy and mendacity.”

    156. Media Credulity Betrays Their Partiality

    “The story was everywhere and was everywhere the same. On June 9, Israel had fired a rocket onto a Gaza beach killing seven picnicking Palestinian civilians...
    “… the IDF, after initially apologizing and offering assistance to the families of those killed, has now investigated and concluded the explosion was not caused by an Israeli shell…

    “The world press, very much including the mainstream U.S. media, tends to take the word of Palestinian spokesmen about civilian deaths, although experience should have taught them by now to be more guarded…

    “After the Gaza incident, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert spoke by phone with U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan, who demanded an explanation for the Gaza deaths. When Mr. Olmert asked why Mr. Annan had not shown similar concern about the scores of missiles hitting Israel, Mr. Annan was nonplussed. ‘What missiles?’ he asked…

    155. Democrats: Defeaticrat Drumbeat

    “Despite the Republicans' best efforts to self-destruct, I can't see the Democrats taking either the House or Senate this November. As I said a few months back, even a loser has to have someone to lose to, and the Dems refuse to fulfill even that minimum requirement…

    “This summer, [Joseph Lieberman’s] an incumbent senator struggling not to lose in his own primary to a candidate who's the darling of the antiwar netroots left. What has the senator done to offend the base? Nothing -- except broadly support the Iraq campaign and other military goals in the war on terror. He's one of a very few Democrats who give the impression they would like America to win…

    “On the Republican side, some of those antipathetic to Mr. Bush were never in favor of liberating Iraq but figure now we're in it we need to win it. Others were in favor but revile Mr. Bush for pussyfooting around not just with the insurgents but with the Iranians and the Syrians. Others are broadly supportive of Mr. Bush on the war but are furious with him for supporting the No Mexican Left Behind immigration bill…

    “None of these demographics seems particularly fertile soil for the Democratic Party, especially one willing to devour Joe Lieberman in the interests of Defeaticrat purity…

    “It seems likelier that this November the electorate will conclude, yet again, the Democrats are not the answer.”

    154. Coulter: Abortion is Dems' Sacrament

    In Ann Coulter's latest book, she asserts that “liberalism contains all the attributes of what is generally known as 'religion',” including a creation mythology (evolution), priests (public school teachers) and a holy sacrament (abortion).

    “Godless: The Church of Liberalism," is the fifth book written by the best-selling author and commentator. "Godless" hit store shelves on June 6, 2006 (6/6/06, a date she deliberately chose since the numbers correspond to the mark of the beast.)

    Coulter: “[E]volution is the official state religion. Although it is possible to believe in God and evolution, it is not possible to not believe in God without believing in evolution -- otherwise, atheists have no explanation for why we are here. Thus, it's very important for the liberal clergy to force small school children to believe in a discredited mystery religion from the 19th century -- evolution -- in order to prepare them to believe in the nonexistence of God, one of the main goals of the American public education system…

    “With global warming, they finally have an issue to be hysterical about that we won't be able to prove them wrong for a thousand years! …

    “[Abortion is] their version of virgin sacrifice. The Democrats will betray any special interest group -- except the pro-abortion ladies. If you mean why is it the holiest sacrament of the liberal religion, it is because they think if women have access to easy abortions, they can engage in carefree trysts without consequence…

    “Adult stem cells have been used to treat more than 80 diseases. Embryonic stem cells have cured nothing -- they have never, ever been tried in one human clinical trial. The embryonic stem cell debate is a fraud to lure Americans into ceding ground on human experimentation…”

    “Chand's lawyer, Gary Batasar, stunned the courtroom by revealing that his client and the 16 others are accused of being involved in a ‘detailed terrorist plot,’ which included plans to storm the Parliament buildings in Ottawa, take political hostages, harm hostages if Canadian troops did not withdraw from Afghanistan, and to attack media outlets including the CBC…

    152. Conservatives Must Hold Firm on Immigration

    “The enactment of an imperfect [immigration] bill, even if it would help to preserve the Republican majority in November, would be a classic case of sacrificing the long-term good for short-term political benefit…

    “The election of a true Democratic majority would have potentially horrifying consequences on domestic and national security issues across the board…

    “But with the immigration, we're not talking about some little throwaway issue, but one whose resolution could determine whether this country will ultimately retain its national identity…

    151. Birthright Sale

    “In Washington, the [U.S.] Senate immigration bill has been selling our birthright for a message of political pottage…

    [T]his bill reduces our existing control of the borders… [T]he Senate bill forbids the federal government from building a fence without first consulting with the Mexican government… [S]tate and local governments are also forbidden by this bill to take any border control actions without first consulting with their Mexican counterparts…

    “This legislation was never about border control. The laws already on the books at this very moment allow us to control the borders, to build any fence we choose, without consulting the government of Mexico… The laws already on the books allow any illegal alien to be arrested and expelled. Those laws are simply not being enforced…

    “Border Patrol agents can knock themselves out capturing people trying to enter the country illegally but nothing happens to most of those people… An Associated Press dispatch reports: ‘The vast majority of people caught smuggling immigrants across the border near San Diego are never prosecuted for the offense, demoralizing the Border Patrol agents’…

    “This is one of the most reckless gambles with the future of this nation ever taken by supposedly responsible members of Congress. The idea that we must consult with Mexico before controlling our own borders is staggering -- and revealing…

    “Mexican president Vicente Fox has even had the nerve to warn that his ‘friendship’ with the United States is at risk if we pass immigration laws he doesn't like. Consulting with his government is truly putting Vicente Fox in charge of the hen house.”

    150. Legislative Travesty

    “The Senate bill pretends to do what it doesn’t truly intend to do—tighten up enforcement—while really doing what its supporters hope no one will notice: conducting a vast social experiment that involves extending the benefits of the welfare state of the world’s richest country to tens of millions of poor, uneducated inhabitants of Latin America, through the expedient of importing them into America…
    “Robert Rector of the Heritage Foundation says that the Senate bill will be the largest expansion of the welfare state in 35 years. College-educated immigrants are a net fiscal benefit to the U.S., but high-school graduates are problematic, and high-school dropouts are an outright fiscal disaster. About half of illegal aliens are dropouts, and the out-of-wedlock birth rate for illegals is roughly 45 percent…

    149. What You Don’t Know About the Immigration Bill

    “By rough projections, the Senate bill would double the legal immigration … to about 40 million…
    “The Senate bill's sponsors didn't publicize its full impact on legal immigration… It's safe to say that few Americans know what the bill would do… I suspect that many senators who voted for the legislation don't have a clue as to the potential overall increase in immigration…
    “Our immigration laws involve a bewildering array of categories by which people can get a ‘green card’… The Senate bill dramatically expands many of these categories and creates a large new one: ‘guest workers’… The Senate bill authorizes 200,000 guest workers annually, plus their spouses and minor children…”

    148. Congress Isn't Blame-Free

    “This epidemic of idiocy in Congress is starting to wear down even die-hard Republicans. Rich Lowry, editor of National Review magazine, recently said that Capitol Hill, where Republicans control both houses of Congress, is being run by ‘a bunch of bungling, spend-thrift, unreformable, tin-eared, unimaginative, hysterical pols.’

    147. Sentiment Against Illegals Is Powerful And Growing

    “High and continuous immigration is occurring under conditions of bilingualism and multiculturalism, rather than assimilation. In the name of diversity, the academic elites have encouraged immigrants to maintain their birth-country cultures and to adopt a stance of separatism and pugnacious victimization.

    “Political scientist Samuel Huntington argues that this amounts to a deconstruction of American identity that has been ‘gradually created over three centuries.’ In his book ‘Mexifornia,’ Victor Davis Hanson says California is not quite Mexico, but not quite the United States either.

    “The political culture of Washington, focused on cheap labor and Latino votes, is nowhere near recognizing what is happening.”

    146. Iran Declares War

    “[Iranian] President Ahmadinejad's letter to President Bush, widely interpreted as a peaceful overture, is in fact a declaration of war. The key sentence in the letter is the closing salutation…‘Peace only unto those who follow the true path.’ …

    “It is a phrase with historical significance in Islam …the prophet Mohammad sent letters to the Byzantine emperor and the Sassanid emperor telling them to convert to the true faith of Islam or be conquered. The letters included the same phrase that President Ahmadinejad used to conclude his letter to Mr. Bush. For Mohammad, the letters were a prelude to a Muslim offensive, a war launched for the purpose of imposing Islamic rule over infidels…

    “Given that Mr. Bush is not about to convert to Islam, what the letter presages is, if anything, an Islamic attack. … [N]o step short of converting to Islam will avert the planned attack so long as the regime in Tehran remains in power. All the ‘carrots’ that the doves in the American foreign policy establishment want to offer … fall short of what Iran's president demands. He demands that America ‘follow the true path’… Short of that, America will not receive peace from the Iranian regime. …

    “…[O]ur president would do us all a service by telling Americans about this Iranian declaration of war. When Al Qaeda issued its February 1998 fatwa, only a few Americans recognized its significance as a declaration of war. That took until September 11, 2001. This time around, let's not miss the warning.”

    145. Echoes of a Dying Culture

    “They're marching in the streets again – flash mobs hundreds of thousands strong, waving their flags and chanting ‘Viva la raza!’ (Long live the race!)…

    “…[T]he true goal: to retake Aztlan! This new, sovereign Hispanic nation, the people of Anahuac, would reconquer the southwestern United States and fuse it with several northern states of Mexico…

    “‘We have an aging white America ... They are dying ... We have got to eliminate the gringo, …if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him.’ …

    “The political agenda of multiculturalism and diversity has virtually accomplished its reason for being – it is now a runaway bullet train on an express track to the thorough destruction of ‘the American Way.’…

    “Is our nation, Columbia, now truly lost? Is our once proud and majestic eagle, emblem of America, ‘dropping’ from sheer exhaustion? …

    “Frosty Wooldridge calls the Latino incursion an ‘Invasion by Invitation,’ a ‘colonization of America by another country.’ …

    “Piece by decaying piece, America is being dismantled…the Boulder, Colo., school district is all but dysfunctional trying to cope with delivering instruction in some 47 different languages. …

    “There's no denying it – America is being invaded on all fronts… Our way of life, our national culture, our very identity is at stake. Does America have the courage of its convictions to rise up and protect our beloved country against this invasion? Does America even have any convictions left?”

    144. The ‘Re-Conquest’ of the Southwest?

    “…[T]he core concepts of reconquista (the ‘re-conquest’ of the Southwest by Mexico) have spread wide and deep-from San Francisco to Los Angeles to Milwaukee to Arkansas and beyond. In Denver, a large banner read: ‘AMERICA IS A CONTINENT NOT A COUNTRY.’…

    “A student at the University of San Francisco… delivered a full-throated rant about Mexico's right to reclaim American territory: ‘We believe that we have the right to be in this land…Aztlan is California! Aztlan is this country! This country was ours…We didn't cross the borders. The borders crossed us’…

    “Gloria Ramirez Vargas… rallied her constituents with a similar cry: ‘Many Mexicans are nourishing the ground in the U.S., but those lands were once ours. Those same lands… we are re-conquering again for our Mexico.’…

    “In Seattle, photojournalist Byron Dazey … snapped hundreds of pictures… ‘Open the Borders’ screamed a giant banner. ‘No more blood! No more borders!’ echoed another placard. ‘Stop the War! Stop the Borders!’ preaches a sign carried by a ‘Freedom Socialist Worker’…

    “Our borders are sieves. We are at war with Islamofascism… while our government prepares to grant a massive amnesty at Mexican President Vicente Fox's behest…

    “The homegrown multiculti-mau-mau-ers know exactly what they believe and they know exactly what they are doing. They aim to mainstream the ‘Stolen Land’ mantra and pervert history. They aim to obliterate America's borders by sheer demographic and political force… “

    143. Why Not Everybody?

    “One of the ways of trying to justify illegal immigration from an economic standpoint is to point out that the work done by these immigrants is adding to the total output of the United States… If that is a sufficient justification, why not open our borders to everybody from countries around the world? If not, why not? …

    “The most obvious objection is that the world's population living in the United States would not only add to output but add to the costs imposed on American citizens…

    “… [T]he financial drain of serving people who cannot or do not pay has shut down some … hospitals, making them unavailable to American citizens as well as illegal aliens…

    “… [P]eople who have been railing at Wal-Mart for not paying their workers ‘enough,’ claiming that the taxpayers are subsidizing Wal-Mart employees' health care and other benefits, never seem to apply the same reasoning to illegal immigrants…

    “While American citizens are legally entitled to welfare state benefits, Mexicans get those benefits only if they cross the border into the United States. In short, immigrants add to such costs while Wal-Mart's American employees do not…

    “Whatever the decision as to how many and what kind of immigrants should be let into the United States, why should that decision be made by people in Mexico, instead of being made here by Americans?”

    142. Banning Patriotism: Is the U.S. Next?

    “In January 2005, a high school in Ijsselstein, Holland, ordered two students to remove patches of the Dutch flag from their backpacks because the administration feared they would provoke Moroccan students…

    “European elites preferred to curtail free speech rather than risk offending unassimilated minority groups…

    “To encourage American pride… is to encourage assimilation -- and assimilation has become a dirty word in American education… the elites’ lack of self-esteem about being American leads to policies that prevent students from appreciating what they have in common with other Americans… As Victor Davis Hanson writes in his book, Mexifornia: A State of Becoming, ‘the goal of assimilation that was once the standard, if unspoken orthodoxy in our schools and government is now ridiculed as racist and untrue.’…

    “Europe’s unquestioned faith in multiculturalism has resulted in the alienation of Muslim immigrants, many of whom feel no ties whatsoever to their adoptive countries. Eurabia’, once just a feared dystopia wherein Europe would become a colony of the Muslim world, increasingly seems like a reality. Could it be that a similar transformation is taking place in America?…

    “America was once unparalleled in its ability to assimilate immigrants. But today the ideal of a melting pot society is under assault by an American educational establishment that believes in the dogma of multiculturalism above all. As a result, it often seems as if Mexifornia, like Eurabia, is already here.”

    141. What Bush Fails To See At The Border

    “What is happening on the southern border is unprecedented… Mexico, a country which officially encourages its emigrants to vote in Mexican elections, urging them to think of themselves as Mexican first and perhaps only… This is invasion masquerading as immigration…

    “It may already be too late to avoid a future annexation of the Southwest by Mexico or the evolution of a Mexican-dominated satellite state… 

    “Mr. President, this is a time for candor. Your immigration policy is viewed as captive to the cheap labor… The failure to recognize this growing and deep disaffection among Republicans, conservatives, independents and, indeed, many Reagan Democrats, is, in the short run, going to lead to a monumental defeat for your party at the polls in November…

    “… I watched the Senate Judiciary Committee's one-day public session on immigration reform… it was remarkable for the near absence of any senator speaking on behalf of the American people or their own constituents…

    “The American people have been made the victims of monumental social engineering perpetuated upon them without their consent and against their will by an arrogant governing elite …

    “Dear Mr. President, you must disenthrall yourself from the failed policies of the present. I implore you to rethink this issue and to change course. Millions of Americans, a great majority of your fellow citizens will be with you. Start speaking and doing the sensible, courageous and right thing. You will see your poll numbers turn dramatically around. You will save your country.”
